Rabadi reviewed Jordan’s efforts to confront the virus and the measures the Kingdom has taken against it, especially regarding health, the economy and social aspects, according to a Planning Ministry statement.
The two sides also discussed the economic and developmental cooperation between the two countries, as well as mechanisms of enhancing and building on them in all fields.
Rabadi stressed the importance of the “distinguished, historical” Jordanian-British relations and their reflection on efforts to achieve comprehensive development in Jordan through technical and economic assistance programmes and supporting small- and medium-sized enterprises.
For his part, the British minister asserted that the UK will continue to provide support for sustainable development efforts and economic reform in Jordan, as well as help in further bolstering the Jordanian government’s efforts in the fight against COVID-19.
Cleverly also acknowledged the “magnitude of challenges” facing Jordan, especially those resulting from the Kingdom hosting large numbers of Syrian refugees, the statement added.
