Jordan’s exports to Brazil increased by a whopping 61 percent in 2022 to reach JD145 million, compared to JD90 million in 2021, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
Fathi Al-Jaghbir, head of the Jordan and Amman Chambers of Industry (JACI), said this “significant increase” is evidence of the importance of exploring non-traditional markets, especially in South and Central America and Africa.
In a statement on Thursday, Jaghbir explained that the main Jordanian products exported to Brazil include fertilizers, potash, phosphates, sterilization materials, medical supplies, clothing products, and foodstuffs.
Role of embassiesHe highlighted the cooperation between the JACI, the Jordan Exports company, and the Jordanian Embassy in Brazil, which coordinated to facilitate the boost in exports. He also lauded the role of Jordan’s ambassador to Brazil, Maan Mosaada, and the embassy staff.
Jaghbir stressed the need to encourage Jordanian embassies around the world to promote Jordanian industries. An increase in Jordanian exports, he noted, supports the national economy and generates more job opportunities for the local workforce.
