The one-day Conference will be held on Monday 21st November, 2005 at the Awal ballroom, Gulf Hotel, Bahrain. It is being organized by the Jordanian Permanent Exhibition, which will be inaugurated on 20th November, 2005 in the Al Hedaya 2 Building on Government Avenue in Manama.
GFH Chief Executive Officer and board member, Mr. Esam Janahi, will be speaking at the landmark Conference alongside high dignitaries such as H.E. Mr. Sharif Al Zu’bi, the Jordanian Minister of Industry and Commerce, and several others from the region.
Mr. Janahi highlighted GFH’s support of the Jordanian government in their strategic policy initiatives to attract multinational investment into the Hashemite Kingdom and boost the economy. “GFH recently invested US$1 billion in the Royal Metropolis project; Jordan’s strategic location at the convergence of Europe, Asia and Africa, provides an ideal business hub for investors on both a regional and global scale,” explained Mr. Janahi.
“I foresee Jordan as playing an integral economic role in connecting the region to the global market, and we avidly support steps taken towards strengthening ties between the Kingdom and the GCC.”
Royal Metropolis comprises two components: Jordan Gate, which will create a business district within Jordan that will be perceived as a regional landmark aimed at attracting global investors keen to tap into the Middle East markets, and the Royal Village which will be Jordan’s first prestigious well-planned gated residential community in Amman.
The Conference on Economic Relations is targeting businessmen and investors in Jordan and GCC countries with several objectives in mind. These include: promoting and developing economic and trade ties between Jordan and GCC countries, directing Gulf investment capitals to Jordan and Jordanian capital to the GCC, ensuring that Jordanian products and services reach the GCC market and vice versa, and fostering close relations between Jordanian and Gulf traders and businessmen and the establishment of joint-ventures.
The Conference agenda comprises three sessions. The first session includes the following topics: Forthcoming Investment Opportunities in Jordan, Investing in Jordan from an Arab Perspective, and Why Jordan. The second session will include: A Horizon of Investment Opportunities in the Arab World, and the Economic Media.
The third session will comprise: The Competitive Edge of Jordanian Products and Services and Free Arab Trade Agreements in Theory and Practice.
