AMMAN — Jordan Phosphate Mines Company (JPMC) Chairman Amer Majali briefed an Indonesian parliamentary delegation on Tuesday about the strategic partnerships between JPMC and the Indonesian government. Noting that Jordan has been exporting phosphate to Indonesia for more than 35 years now, Majali pointed to  a partnership that will materialise in July when the first Jordanian-Indonesian joint plant opens. He said other accords were signed for a second joint factory during the visit of His Majesty King Abdullah to Indonesia last February, expressing hope that a deal can be reached soon to set up a third plant in Indonesia.  The head of the delegation said the Indonesian parliament will be willing to support new joint ventures between the two countries. The Indonesian delegates mentioned that their country requires large quantities of fertilisers each year and that the government provides farmers with around $17 billion in annual subsidies.
