Government advances Jordan Gateway joint industrial park plan

Government ministers approve advancing plans to establish a joint Israeli-Jordanian industrial park on the two sides of the border, connected by an existing bridge.

The plan, dubbed Jordan Gateway, will enable Israelis and Jordanians to “conveniently” cross between the sides to work on joint projects.

An existing bridge, the Jordan River Crossing, already connects the two sides of the zone, near the Israeli city of Beit She’an.

A facility to accommodate businesspeople and guests will be built on the Israeli side, according to the plan.

On Twitter, Prime Minister Yair Lapid hails the plan as “one of the largest-ever joint business ventures” between Israel and Jordan.
