AMMAN — Technical, financial and economic help from the US contributed to economic development in the Kingdom, Jordan Investment Commission (JIC) President Montaser Oqlah said Saturday.

According to a JIC statement released Saturday, he added during a meeting with US Ambassador to Jordan Alice G. Wells and an accompanying delegation that the strong Jordanian-US partnership led to implementing joint programmes. 

Oqlah underlined the importance of the commission's tasks to boost Jordan's competitive investment climate in international markets. 

"The two sides discussed bilateral cooperation in the investment and economic fields and highlighted the importance of the Jordanian-US partnership in serving the public in both countries," the statement said.

"Oqlah reviewed economic reforms that led to important economic developments such as amending laws and legislations as well as signing Arab and international agreements to open new export markets and formulate economic and finance policies," it added.

The JIC chief stressed that economic agreements and policies contributed to an attractive environment for investment, and highlighted the establishment of  investment window which licences business activities in the Kingdom and reviews licensing measures to simplify them, 

He described the investment window as a "quantum leap" to serving investors and improve the work environment, according to Oqlah. 


Wells commended the depth of the Jordanian-US relations in most fields, particularly the economic development.
