„I proposed the establishment of a bilateral group of cooperation, formed of prominent businessmen in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and in Romania, for the identification of a strategy in the sense to create such a connecting bridge between our countries”, said Geoana, according to a release remitted by the Senate’s Press Office.
The starting point for such a strategy could be a closer cooperation in the fields of infrastructure, of energy, but also in the field of financial-banking services, added Zaid Rifa’ i, the Chairman of the Jordanian Senate.
Visa regime between the two countries was the other main item approached during the meeting, the Romanian side pledging to examine a faster and more flexible business visa regime for the Jordanian citizens.
Attending the meeting were also members of the committees for economy, justice, education and agriculture of Romania’s Senate and of the Senate of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
According to the quoted source, the two sides underlined the need to see the relation between the two legislative chambers extending to the aforementioned fields, beyond the group of friendship.
Romania and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan have already signed 28 bilateral agreements, other nine being considered and the two officials underlined that these represent another opportunity for the consolidation and deepening of the bilateral relation.
