May 17, 2015 5:38 P.M. (Updated: May 17, 2015 5:38 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) – The Jordanian Minister of Industry and Commerce Maha al-Alion Sunday metwith Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah in Ramallah to discuss Palestinian-Jordanian economic relations.

The discussions focused on the formation of a "higher joint committee" between the two countries, which Hamdallah said would be a helpful tool for increasing commercial exchange between Jordan and Palestine as well as with other countries around the world.

Hamdallah and al-Ali discussed other ways that cooperation with Jordan could support the Palestinian economy.

Suggestions included encouraging religious tourism from Jordan to Palestine, establishing joint commercial centers, and increasing the list of products imported and exported between the two countries.

The Palestinian economy, which is heavily burdened by the Israeli occupation, has been in a dire state for years.
