Jordan Free and Development Zones Group (JFZ) has reportedly announced a conference designed to find ways to reconstruct Middle Eastern countries affected by conflict.

According to Jordan Times, the forum will take place in August 2019 and aim to find opportunities for Jordanian and Arab investors in the commercial and economic sectors.

The event will also debate how to address obstacles related to competitiveness in the reconstruction of conflict-hit countries.

JFZ’s chairman, Khalaf Hmeisat, reportedly said that Jordan’s location at the centre of the Middle East would help it better contribute to reconstruction projects in the Middle East.

Also commenting on the conference, Arab Union of Free Zones' secretary-general, Mahmoud Qteishat, said the event would address several issues related to the important role of Arab states and sovereign funds in financing reconstruction projects.

Jordan Times also reported that in June 2019, the Jordanian Construction Contractors Association announced its list of reconstruction and investment projects in Iraq, with investments totalling $46bn.
