Jordan and Canada on Sunday discussed enhancing bilateral development cooperation, especially in food and water security.

Jordan’s Minister of Planning and International Cooperation Nasser Shraideh and Canadian International Development Minister Harjit Sajjan discussed it.

The duo also explored ways to combat climate change and promote Investment opportunities.

Shraideh highlighted the importance of strengthening their ties and developing Canadian economy and development aid policy to the Kingdom.

The two agreed to renew the MoU signed in 2015 between both countries to identify the areas where Canada could support Jordan.

This includes an agreement to support the education sector and vocational and technical education.

Shraideh noted the importance of the National Water Carrier project, which occupies a top priority for water security in Jordan.

He said the second donor conference, slated to take place in 2023 would mobilize more support for the project.
