Speaking to the Jordan News Agency, Petra, Jaghbir said Tuesday that leather and textile industries, medical supplies, chemicals, foodstuffs, and agricultural and livestock industries can potentially access the Algerian market.

He called for the reactivation of a 1997 trade cooperation agreement between the two countries as well as a deal to promote and expand trade exchange between them.

He emphasized the need for opening a direct maritime transport route between Jordan, Algeria, and other Arab nations in North Africa.

He said the Amman and Jordan chambers of industry regularly hold bilateral meetings with Algerian businesspeople to showcase Jordanian products.

He said that top exports from the Kingdom to Algeria are namely pharmaceuticals, packaging materials, and pesticides, while imports from the North African nation include sugarcane, petroleum gases and hydrocarbons, tires, ceramic supplies, and chocolate.

The total value of trade exchange between the two countries stood at JD141 million last year.
