In a press conference with government spokesman, Muhannad Al Mubaidin, Hneifat reviewed the most important achievements of the Ministry of Agriculture in 2023 and its most prominent plans for the upcoming year.

He said that Jordan is trying to establish a government institutional framework for marketing, which is the Jordanian-Palestinian Agricultural Products Marketing Company (JPACO) in partnership with the Palestinians.

He added that Jordan supports the land and water rights of Palestinian farmers. Hneifat mentioned that Jordan exported about 2,000 tons of water last year, expecting to produce about 10,000 tonnes this year.

Hneifat mentioned that Jordan seeks to expand in this field, revealing that there will be packing centers in either the Jordan Valley or the Shafa Badran area. He also added that he will work on a qualitative leap in marketing and cooperate with the private sector to remove all obstacles hindering the movement of exports to traditional markets.
