Jordan comes to India

His Majesty King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein of Jordan attended a part of the Jordanian-Indian Business Forum that was held in New Delhi, where he promised potential investors all help possible to facilitate their businesses in Jordan, according to a Royal Court statement during his state visit to India.

“Let’s get things done and, please, do not be bashful with our ministers here. Tell them exactly what you think and what you need, and we will follow up to make sure that happens,” His Majesty told an audience of more than 300 business people, investors and company representatives from both countries, who discussed means to enhance cooperation between Jordan and India.

The discussions focused on various fields, especially investment, trade, education, industry, health, agriculture, mining, telecommunication, tourism and energy. The forum, titled “Enhancing investment and partnership”, was organised by the Jordan Chamber of Commerce and the Jordan Investment Commission in cooperation with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI).

In his remarks at the event, His Majesty expressed delight over visiting India along with the Jordanian delegation, public and the private sector representatives from Jordan and a number of Jordanian youth studying in India. His Majesty thanked the Federation of India’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Confederation of Indian Industry, the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India, and the government of India for “making the trip so successful”.

The King noted that the opportunities for Indian countrymen and women to come to Jordan have been facilitated.

His Majesty said, “We have many challenges ahead of us, and… it is more important that people of different cultures and different backgrounds energise each other and come closer together, and I believe that our two-day visit here in India will be the new start of a relationship between our two countries”. The number of Indian tourists visiting Jordan is expected to increase after Amman eased the entry procedures for Indian nationals. Indian Nationals are now entitled to visa on arrival to Jordan according to announcement made by His Majesty King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein of Jordan.

The seminar was preceded by a gala evening hosted by the Jordan Chamber of Commerce, in association with the Jordan Chamber of Commerce and FICCI. The gala was graced by the presence of His Excellency Issa Gammoh, Secretary General, Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, Jordan; Majd Abu Arqub of the Jordan Tourism Board, plus several travel trade and media partners of Think Strawberries, the India Representative Office of Jordan Tourism Board.

A symphony of food and music, the highlight of the evening was the special piano recital of Jordan’s renowned piano maestro Talal Abu Al Ragheb, whose Bedouin style music took the guests on a musical journey to Jordan interspersed with the artists’ stunning videos that have been shot in all the iconic locations of Jordan.
