Bangladesh and Jordan have discussed ways to strengthen trade relations between the two countries.

Bangladesh Ambassador to Jordan Nahida Sobhan met Jordan's Minister of Industry, Trade and Supply Maha Ali recently and discussed the bilateral issues. 

Zaher Al-Qatarneh, assistant secretary general (equivalent to our additional secretary) of the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Supply was present at the meeting. 

Muhammad Bashir, the first secretary of the Embassy of Bangladesh in Jordan accompanied the ambassador.

Ambassador Sobhan mentioned that there are a lot of scopes to strengthen trade relations between Bangladesh and Jordan. She added that she would work together with Jordan with this aim during her stay. 

They discussed about concluding a trade agreement between the two countries. 

Minister Maha Ali informed that an MoU between BCCIC of the Ministry of Industries of Bangladesh and Jordan Mine Phosphate Company (JPMC) concluded in 2017 in the presence of the then industries minister of Bangladesh. 

The ambassador expressed eagerness to exchange business delegations between the two countries to explore more opportunities by both the countries. 

Due to the Covid-19 situation, it might not be possible to conduct such visits right now, she added. In this context, she proposed to begin such discussions between business communities through a webinar, where relevant business people from both sides can participate. 

Such meetings could later be followed up by exchanging delegations when the global pandemic situation would be over. 

She stated that the Bangladeshi embassy is ready to facilitate such meetings.  

Showing keen interest, she said that her ministry and the embassy could work together to prepare concept note and agenda for the webinar to make it fruitful. 

The ambassador proposed that it might take place in May 2021. 

While handing over some leather goods as gifts to the minister, Ambassador Sobhan briefed the minister about the leather industry in Bangladesh and its potentialities. 

She mentioned that currently, Bangladesh is the 8th largest global exporter of leather products and leather. 

In addition to the skilled labour for the RMG sector, Bangladesh also has skilled workers for leather industries, she furthered. 

Both the ambassadors and the ministers also praised women’s empowerment in their respective countries.
