In a meeting with Tamim Al-Qasrawi, member of the Amman Chamber of Industry (ACI) board of directors, Varga said the Slovak trade mission and its ACI counterparts will hold joint business meetings, said the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

ACI said in a statement Saturday that Qasrawi asserted the importance of the Slovak market for Jordanian exports. He said Slovakia presented a gateway to the EU and Eastern European countries, mainly the Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Croatia.

These markets, Qasrawi added, are “promising” for Jordanian industries, especially in light of the Kingdom’s free trade agreement  with the EU He said that Jordan could give Slovak products access to the markets in the Arab Gulf region, as well as Iraq and Syria.

Jordan is an “attractive” area to foreign investment, due to its “distinguished” geographical location, which makes the Kingdom a gateway to markets in the Gulf Arab region and Iraq, Qasrawi explained.

Jordan’s free trade agreements open many world markets to the Kingdom’s exports, he said, pointing to ACI’s intention to organize a Jordanian economic delegation’s visit to Slovakia to bolster bilateral economic ties.

On the trade exchange, he said Jordanian exports to Slovakia are “modest,” estimated at nearly $1 million in 2021, compared with imports worth $14 million, mainly of vehicles and machinery.
