The Jordan Ireland Business Association (JIBA) was officially launched under the patronage of the Minister of Industry, Trade and Supply, Dr. Tariq Hammouri, at a reception held in the St Régis Hotel, Amman, on Wednesday the 11th of September, 2019.
The launch of JIBA which follows the opening of the first Embassy of Ireland to Jordan in January of this year, demonstrates the strong interests of the Jordanian and the Irish governments in rapidly strengthening the trade relationships between the two countries. That is to say, the launch of JIBA is a huge and important milestone in this regard, according to a JIBA statement.
With this objective in mind, JIBA will convene bi-monthly meetings of Irish and Jordanian business representatives. And will also arrange visits by Jordanian business delegations to Ireland, and from Ireland to Jordan in order to facilitate the establishment of business to business relationships across key sectors, which will benefit both countries, the statement said.
