Economy Minister Eli Cohen met on Sunday with Japanese Foreign Affairs Minister Taro Kono, Jordan's Minister for Regional Cooperation Imad Fakhuri and Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki to promote the Peace Corridor project and the joint Agro-Industrial Park.

 

 

The meeting took place in anticipation of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's arrival in the region Wednesday, following the end of the diplomatic crisis between Jordan and Israel and the return of an Israeli ambassador to Jordan two weeks ago.

This is the first ministerial meeting between the Israeli, Jordanian and Palestinian ministers since September 2016, and the first one including Israel and Jordan's representatives since the crisis between the two countries came to an end.

 

The goal of the Agro-Industrial-Park project in Jericho is to create an economic infrastructure for peace in the region.

 

The Agro Industrial park funded by Japan's government symbolizes the heart of the project and exports the biggest Palestinian produce coming from local factories.

 

Economy Minister Eli Cohen said promoting the industrial park was an interest shared by both sides. "Our policy is to provide relief measures whenever possible and to make our best efforts to provide those who are not involved in terrorism with normal lives," Cohen said.
