Israel, Jordan to build industrial park

(JNS.org) Israel and Jordan have agreed to construct a joint industrial park on the border between the two nations, marking their first large-scale agreement since the 1994 peace treaty. The future industrial park in the northern Jordan Valley will consist of two parallel industrial and employment zones that will be connected by a bridge spanning the Jordan River. “[The agreement] will strengthen relations between the two states and add to growth in the region through new factories, joint projects and the creation of new jobs,” Israeli Regional Cooperation Minister Silvan Shalom said.
