Jordon is looking forward to tie up with United Kindgdon in the field of building construction sector seeking all expertise.
Jordan's Minister of Public Works and Housing, Sami Halaseh, has met the Kingdom's British ambassador Peter Millett to discuss ways of boosting co-operation with British companies in the construction sector.
The meeting has taken place before the Arab-British Economic Forum where Halaseh provided a birdís eye view of industry in Jordon including designing and overseeing the construction of government buildings as well as directly overseeing the housing sector.
Halaseh, the chairman of the board of directors of the Housing and Urban Development Corporation, and of the Jordanian National Building Council sees many opportunities in his county.
Millett, meanwhile, said that efforts would be made to strengthen bilateral cooperation in the construction sector. In particular, he said there would be a focus on the provision of engineering expertise in areas such as renewable energy, energy conservation and traffic safety.
However, Jordonís BAM International has successfully completed the construction of new Aqaba Port on behalf of Aqaba Development Corporation (ADC).
Together with its Jordanian joint venture partner MAG, BAM was responsible for the design and construction of four new berths (in total approximately 800 metres quay wall), revetment works, a breakwater, marine services, pontoons and a slip way. Furthermore land reclamation and dredging works (800,000 m3) as well as the construction of two intake pipes and one outfall pipe was included in the Ä65mn ($88.5mn) contract.
