Jordan and Japan on Monday discussed an investment plan to revitalise the Hijaz Railway’s infrastructure in support of the national economy, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
During a meeting with a Japanese delegation, Director General of the Hijaz Railway Corporation Salah Luzi said that the plan would be funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Japan Bank for International Cooperation, highlighting JICA’s role in enhancing Jordanian-Japanese ties through its investments in Jordan’s infrastructure.
Donors, in partnership with the Jordanian private sector, will provide loans and grants for the project, which will also support other initiatives such as linking Aqaba’s old port with its new one.
