Held under the theme“New Aspects for Economic and Investment Cooperation”, the forum was organised by the Federation of Gulf Cooperation Council Chambers (FGCCC), in cooperation with the Secretariat General of GCC and the Jordan Chamber of Commerce (JCC).

The Chamber's delegation was led by its Chairman Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim Al Thani and includes board members Abdel Rahman Abdel Jalil Abdel Ghani and Dr. Mohamed Jawhar Al Mohamed, as well as general manager Saleh bin Hamad Al Sharqi alongside a number of prominent businessmen.

Qatar's Ambassador to Jordan H E Sheikh Saud bin Nasser bin Jassim Al Thani was also present at the inauguration ceremony.

On the sidelines of the forum, Prime Minister of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan H E Dr. Bisher Hani Al Khasawneh met in his office with heads of delegations participating in the event, including QC Chairman Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim Al Thani.

In a statement, Sheikh Khalifa praised the close relations between GCC states and Jordan at all fields, especially in the economic and commercial aspects, noting that the Gulf private sector enjoys distinguished relations with its Jordanian counterpart.

He expressed his hope the forum would contribute to boosting economic and commercial ties between both parties and transferring the strong brotherly relations between the Gulf and Jordanian private sectors to broader horizons, in a way that creates common benefits to citizens, the economy and governments, and reflects a distinct model for Arab-Arab economic relations.

Sheikh Khalifa also stressed the historic deep-rooted relations between Qatar and Jordan at all levels, especially in the economic and commercial fields, pointing to their common concern to develop such relations to higher levels, as well as strengthen cooperation between the Qatari and Jordanian private sectors, in a way that benefits the two countries' economies, mutual investment projects, and trade volume.

As for the two countries' bilateral trade, Sheikh Khalifa said that last year trade exchange between both countries amounted to QR624m, indicating that Chambers of Commerce in both countries have a major role in developing cooperation relations between the private sector through activating the joint business council, intensifying mutual visits and holding meetings that address ways to enhance cooperation, increase trade exchange and advance joint economic relations.

QC Chairman emphasised that Qatari businessmen are interested to expand their investments in Jordan in various sectors like healthcare, tourism, banking, education, real estate, equities, and alternative energy, noting that there are hundreds of Jordanian companies operating in Qatar in partnership with Qatari companies in many sectors such as trading, contracting, construction, interior design, maintenance, real estate, education, services, and others.

He invited Qatari and Jordanian businessmen to forge partnerships and alliances, whether in Qatar or Jordan, stressing that both counties enjoy an attractive investment climate and offer a host of affordable opportunities.

On behalf of the Jordanian Prime Minister, Jordan's Minister of Industry, Trade, and Supply H E Yousef Shamali inaugurated the forum which aims to review investment opportunities in economic and commercial sectors; and address top challenges facing the commercial GCC-Jordanian cooperation and means to overcome them.
