Fifty companies and authorities of the export sector participated in the delegation.

The Exporters’ Association of Crete was represented in the particular delegation by its President, Mr. Alkiviades Kalabokis, and took part in the two-day operations that aimed exclusively at expanding the economic relations between the two countries.

The  sectors  of  Jordan’s economy  that  raised  the  most  prominent  interest  and  have  the  best  prospects  for  the  Greek  exporting  enterprises  are  those of  construction materials, energy, chemical  products (fertilizers, paints), food  and beverage (especially bottled water, juices), cosmetics, pharmaceutical products, telecommunications and  transportations.

During  these  two  days, agreements  were  signed  between  authorities  (Jordan’s Chamber  of  Commerce, SEVE etc.) and  various  business transactions  were finalized.

From  the  Greek side, present at the business delegation were Mr. John Tsoukalas, of the General Secretariat for Research and Technology,  Mr. Anastasios  Antonopoulos,  President  of  the Greek-Arabian Chamber of Commerce and Development, Mrs. Dimitra  Mitrogiannopoulou, Vice President of the Exporters’ Association of Northern Greece (SEVE), and others.

It  is  worth  mentioning  that  companies  from  neighbouring  countries  such  as  Palestine, Iraq, the United  Arab  Emirates  also participated in  the  meetings.

The Greek ambassador Mr. Trifonas Paraskevopoulos welcomed the Greek  delegation  and  gave  a  reception  in  honor  of  all  its  members  at  the  place  where  the  meetings  were  held (the Hotel  Le  Royal). The  Chamber  of  Commerce  and Industry of Jordan also hosted  dinner in  honor  of  the  entire delegation at the  King  Hussein Club.

The  Exporters’  Association of Crete was once again present and strengthened its  relations with the Ministry of  Foreign Affairs for its participation  in  future  business delegations organized by the specific Ministry aiming solely at promoting  the  Cretan  exportable  products.
