The delegation, led by Dana Al-Zoubi, secretary-general of the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Supply, arrived in Germany as part of an institutional partnership with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, in collaboration with the German-Arab Chamber of Commerce in Berlin.

Gerlind Heckmann of the Federal Ministry’s General Department for Foreign Policy chaired the German side to the meeting.

Zoubi gave a presentation on the Jordanian economy and foreign trade policy, reviewing the challenges the country is facing and the government’s plans to stimulate growth, including increasing export competitiveness, according to a ministry statement issued on Saturday.

She also reviewed potential avenues of cooperation with the German Federal Ministry to enhance export promotion, expressing appreciation of the Federal Republic of Germany for its ongoing support of the Jordanian economy and programs that are designed to strengthen the private sector’s role in export development and promotion.

The German official, on the other hand, said that the Jordanian-German institutional partnership’s goal is to share knowledge in order to help small- and medium-sized businesses in both countries export more while also involving the private sector.

She stated that the Jordanian-German export promotion collaboration is the first for Germany with an Arab country.

During the meetings, the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Supply and the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action signed a declaration of intent to establish an institutional partnership to promote small and medium enterprise exports.
