Amman, Feb 7 (Petra) -- The joint Jordanian-Iraqi Higher Committee on Wednesday opens a two-day session in Baghdad to discuss cementing cooperation in economic and other fields.
Minister of Industry, Trade and Supply and Minister of Labor Yousef Shamali told Petra in an interview that a host of issues are on the agenda, top of which are intra-trade and removing barriers to trade flow as well as stimulating the private sector to benefit from opportunities available in either country.
Shamali, who will head the Jordanian side to the meetings, said that investment projects will be launched, given the 'unprecedented' advantages and incentives offered by the investment environment legislation, pointing to the many areas available for business in Iraq.
He added that the meetings will follow up on the progress of a joint economic city project, trilateral Jordanian-Iraqi-Egyptian ventures, as well as cooperation in energy, transport, customs, health, food, trade, industry and other fields.
A Jordanian-Iraqi business forum will also be held on the sidelines of the meetings to tackle future areas of cooperation at the level of businessmen and the private sector in both countries, he said.
