SCHIPHOL, the Netherlands: March 21, 2018. During a two-day visit to the Netherlands this week, Jordan’s King Abdullah II and a delegation of government officials including minister of Industry and Trade Yarub Al Qudah; and the Kingdom’s ambassador to the Netherlands, Ahmad Al Mufleh, paid a visit to Schiphol’s Joint Inspection Center (JIC) at SmartGate Cargo.

Royal VisitThe Jordanian delegation was shown how a package arriving at SmartGate Cargo is processed through the JIC in order to make freight handling safer and more efficient by allowing law enforcement and inspection authorities carry out checks in cooperation with business partners.

“The event had the aim to assess the import processes of perishables and their effectiveness as part of a public-private cooperation,” said Panalpina managing director for the Netherlands Rob de Vos. “Essentially how these processes can have a positive impact on the speed of handling cargo by private entities without compromising security,” he added.

Earlier in the day, King Abdullah met with business leaders at the Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers to outline opportunities offered by Jordan to foreign investors in the renewable energy, infrastructure and transport sectors, as well as the benefits of logistic services at Aqaba Port.

Jordan is seeking Dutch expertise in agriculture, water management, energy and energy storing solutions and Netherlands minister of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Sigrid Kaag said both governments would prepare an action plan and roadmap to identify available investment opportunities in the Hashemite Kingdom.
