During his participation in the Jordanian-Syrian Economic Forum held in the Syrian capital Damascus, Juwaid said Syrian investments established within the industrial estates cover multiple sectors, mainly food, pharmaceuticals, textile, engineering and plastic industries, which contributed to creating 2,500 job opportunities for Jordanians.

Current global conditions require Arab economic integration by promoting trade and economic relations and facilitating businesspeople to carry out their activities and establish joint projects, he noted.

Juwaid said JIEC offers multiple privileges and incentives to investors, referring to Jordan’s commercial agreements signed with many economic blocs worldwide, which qualify the entry of industrial products to various global markets.

Calling on Syrian companies to benefit from the privileges offered by Jordanian industrial zones, he said this step will qualify the entry of Syrian products to various global markets, as JIEC has finally completed initial stages to launch new industrial estates in Salt, Madaba, and Tafileh governorates and is about to finish the expansion phases in Al Muwaqar Industrial Estate, and Al Hassan Industrial Estate.

Jordan, he noted, is on the threshold of an important economic stage, based on the launch of Jordan’s Economic Modernization Vision, and its new Investment Environment Law.
