AMMAN — Jordan Chamber of Industry (JCI) First Deputy Chairman Adnan Abul Ragheb on Tuesday promoted Jordan's strategic location as a gateway to penetrate Arab markets. At a meeting with Danish Regional Ambassador to Amman, Damascus and Beirut Svend Waevers, Abul Ragheb discussed ways to enhance economic and commercial ties between the private sectors in Jordan and Denmark.

They stressed the importance of addressing obstacles facing Jordanian exports to the European Union (EU) in general, with Abul Ragheb noting that meeting EU technical standards is the most important challenge in this regard. The JCI official also called for arranging a visit to the Kingdom by a Danish economic delegation to have a firsthand look at available opportunities and establishing joint investment and commercial partnerships.

They also expressed their desire to promote business opportunities and partnerships and to increase the commercial trade balance, which stood at $183 million last year.
