 During the meeting, King Abdullah voiced pride in the strategic partnership between Jordan and Germany, expressing keenness to bolster cooperation across all fields, especially investment in renewable energy.

 Discussing Jordan’s recently launched Economic Modernization Vision for the upcoming decade, His Majesty noted sustainability as a key pillar within the vision, which will enable the Kingdom to work, in cooperation with the private sector and international and regional partners, on projects related to countering climate change, food and water security, and clean energy.

 The meeting also covered Jordan’s efforts to step up regional cooperation and integration in energy, transport, water, and food security, especially in light of the economic repercussions of the crisis between Russia and Ukraine.

 For his part, Vice Chancellor Habeck commended Jordan’s efforts to address the impact of climate change and its commitment to reducing carbon emissions, noting Germany’s keenness on strengthening its partnership with Jordan to bolster energy security.

 The vice chancellor noted the investment opportunities in Jordan for the German private sector, especially in solar energy and green hydrogen projects, expressing Germany’s readiness to offer training opportunities on renewable energy for Jordanian engineering students.

 Director of the Office of His Majesty Jafar Hassan, Planning Minister Nasser Shraideh, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Saleh Kharabsheh, and Germany’s Ambassador to Jordan Bernhard Kampmann attended the meeting.

 Earlier on Wednesday, Vice Chancellor Habeck participated in the MENA-Europe Future Energy Dialogue, which is co-hosted by Jordan and Germany at the Dead Sea and aims to launch initiatives to develop renewable energy resources and the infrastructure needed for the production and trade of green hydrogen.
