The Minister of Planning and International Cooperation, Imad Fakhoury and the Ambassador of Italy to Amman, Giovanni Brauzzi, signed the new Framework Agreement for Development Cooperation, which replaces and innovates the previous Agreement of 1966.

The new agreement – explains the Embassy – launches a structured cooperation, even in the medium and long term, in favor of the Hashemite Kingdom, which goes beyond the response to the Syrian humanitarian crisis that was the basis of the action of previous years.

The agreement signed yesterday morning in Amman, underlines the Embassy, “seals Italy’s ongoing commitment to supporting Jordan in the field of development cooperation”, which, it should be noted, has seen the return of the Hashemite Kingdom in the last three years among the priority countries for the action of the Italian Cooperation, the establishment of an AICS headquarters and, in March 2017, the signing of a bilateral Memorandum of Understanding which makes available to Jordan over 162 million euros in three years between aid credits and gifts.

On the fringe of the signing of the agreement, Ambassador Brauzzi presented the Minister with the Honour of the Order of the Star of Italy, which was given to the Fakhoury of Jordan by President Mattarella.
