In a statement on Sunday, JEA head Ahmad Al-Khudari lauded Jordan's participation as “successful," and enabled companies to promote their products, network to conclude trade deals and review the latest developments in the food manufacturing field.

Saudi Arabia, he said, is a "key" market for Jordanian industrial exports, in light of the "strong" relations between the two brotherly countries at various levels, in addition to geographical proximity.

Jordan's participation in the exhibition was "very important" for the Kingdom's industrial companies, especially in the current stage, which is witnessing global interest in the food sector, he said.

During the past years, he noted Jordan's industry has witnessed "remarkable" development, in terms of quality and competitive price, displayed in its access to 142 markets across the world.

In this regard, he pointed to the need to maintain support to participation in foreign fairs, which constitutes an important opportunity to promote and open new markets for national products.

Meanwhile, JEA's Director General, Halim Abu Rahma, said JEA, since its establishment in 1988, has been "continuously" seeking to launch various programs that would promote national exports to various Arab and foreign markets, especially with countries that the Kingdom has signed free trade agreements (FTA).

JEA, he noted, works within "clear" plans and programs to enable industrial and exporter community to enter new markets and benefit from the Kingdom's agreements with various global economic blocs.
