Minister of state for commerce and industry Nirmala Sitharaman and her Jordanian counterpart Maha Ali discussed about increasing cooperation in the areas of trade, industry, standards and specifications, tourism and transport at the 9th Joint Jordanian-Indian Committee session, which met after a gap of almost nine years.

Sitharaman, who was in Jordan earlier this week, added that the 15 % growth in bilateral trade in the past year to around $2 billion is positive and should be built on.

The Indian minister, calling for maximising the cooperation between the countries, said that there are possibilities of increasing Jordan’s exports to India and expanding India’s business activities and investments in the Kingdom as well as establishing interaction between small and medium scale enterprises.
