On Monday, President of the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority (ASEZA), Nayef Bakhit, met with the Chinese Ambassador to Jordan, Chen Chuandong, to discuss the prospects of boosting Chinese investments in Aqaba and attracting more capital to the coastal city.

During the meeting, Bakhit highlighted investment opportunities and incentives available in Aqaba Special Economic Zone, saying that the fact that there are Chinese investments in Aqaba is a testament that the port city of Aqaba is a magnet for foreign capital.

He stressed that ASEZA seeks to reach out to various Chinese provinces to promote investment opportunities and facilities available to investors in Aqaba.

Bakhit underlined the importance of enhancing tourism cooperation through marketing Aqaba’s tourist product and attracting Chinese visitors to the Golden Triangle, which includes Aqaba, Wadi Rum, and Petra through low-cost charter flights and launching a new route linking Aqaba with China.

On the other hand Ambassador Chen expressed appreciation for ASEZA’s continuous support for Chinese investors, noting that Jordan’s investment environment is among the best in the Arab world.
