Some 100 local companies are gearing up to take part in the event, organized by the International Promoters Company (IPCO) in collaboration with the Jordan Investment Commission.

The fair provides ample opportunities for the industrial sector to place its products on display shelves. It is expected to grab the attention of a significant number of visitors for the high-quality Jordanian products that made a name for themselves in the region.

The minister also projected domestic products to continue to boom, which would breathe new life into exports through new markets, in addition to invigorate economic engagement and trade exchange with neighboring countries.
