Jordan eyes promising African markets
(MENAFN - Jordan News Agency) Amman, Nov. 24 (Petra) -- Minister of State for Investment Affairs, Muhannad Shehadeh, Thursday, lauded the African market as "promising" to national exports which give made-in-Jordan products a real opportunity to access it for competition.
Meeting representatives of local companies participating in an upcoming trade tour to Tanzania, Kenya and Ethiopia, the minister underscored the need to benefit from business ambience in the Kingdom to open new non-traditional markets in a bid to attract investments that would create job opportunities.
