ACC president, Pakistani ambassador discuss trade ties

President of the Amman Chamber of Commerce (ACC) Issa Murad praised the strong and distinguished economic ties between Jordan and Pakistan, and said they would reflect positively on trade exchange between the two countries.

At a meeting with Pakistani Ambassador to Jordan Junaid Rehmat, Murad called for coordination between the ACC an the Pakistani Embassy in Amman on issues related to economic and trade cooperation between the two countries.

He described trade relations as modest and below the aspirations of both countries, calling for intensive efforts to further boost them.

According to ACC figures, Jordan’s exports to Pakistan during the first eleven months of 2017 stood at JD13 million while imports amounted to JD23 million.

The ambassador for his part highlighted the need to boost efforts between the chambers of commerce of both countries to enhance bilateral trade cooperation.

He said the embassy will call upon chambers of commerce in his country to organize visits for Jordanian trade delegations to Pakistan to discuss means to promote trade relations and increase trade exchange between Jordan and Pakistan.
