The Amman Chamber of Commerce (ACC) said enhanced access of Jordanian products and goods to the Palestinian market and expansion of its base represents an opportunity to expedite recovery of the national economy from the Covid-19 pandemic-induced consequences.

In his interview with "Petra" on Saturday, the ACC Head, Khalil Haj Tawfiq said solidarity with the Palestinian economy is a duty to support its steadfastness, in light of the "distinguished and historic" Jordanian-Palestinian relations.

Haj Tawfiq also referred to Jordan's support to the Palestinian people and their just cause, adding that His Majesty King Abdullah II "always affirms that the Kingdom will remain the true support for Palestinians."

Haj Tawfiq called for promoting trade and investment exchange between Jordan and Palestine to "better" levels that meet the two peoples' aspirations.

He also lauded the "remarkable" efforts made by the Jordanian government and the Royal directives to facilitate access of Jordanian products to the Palestinian market and remove the Israel-imposed obstacles.

Stressing the importance of facilitating access to Palestinian market to enhance trade exchange with the Palestinian side, he also highlighted the importance of revamping trade mechanisms related to private sector institutions in the two brotherly countries, which will be reflected on the level of their economic relations.
