Amman/Jordan was the host city in June for a RAME Field Meeting. The event was organized by the NAOURI Group (since in Jordan – at present - no National Association as the representative of FIATA exist) in co-operation with FIATA’s RAME Chairman Capt. Mansoor from Dubai/UAE.
It was held under the patronage of the Ministry of Transport of Jordan. Special attention was given to the issue of regional free flow of cargoes between the Middle East countries and role played by the Jordanian Authorities.
The conference was attended by some 75 delegates from 15 countries and was chaired by Capt. Mansoor Y.A. Ghafoor from the United Arab Emirates. Also participating were ranking representatives from the Jordanian Government and Commercial Trade. It provided a perfect setting for different presentations, such as the Jordan Logistics Association, H.E. Eng. Amer Al-Hadidi from the Ministry of Transport, H.E. Metab Al-Zaben from Jordan Customs, H.E. Amin Kawar from Aqaba Container Terminal as well as H.E. Imad Fakhoury from the Aqaba Development Company, amongst others. Welcome speeches have been held by H.E. Mr. Saoud Nsairat, Minister of Transport of The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, and other Government and Commercial Trade Representatives. During the conference, a meeting could be arranged with the help of RAME Presidency between delegates of Syria and Officials from Jordan Customs. Topic discussions have attracted a large amount of delegates to interact for issues discussed. The RAME Meeting in Amman/Jordan has attracted the highest number of participants in the RAME History.
RAME Chairman Capt. Mansoor announced together with Mr. Naouri (the organizer’s of this event) that Jordan has made ambitious efforts to form a national association and they hope, that after this meeting all documents will be accepted by the Government and they can transmit it to FIATA for approval at the next General Meeting which will be held during the FIATA WORLD CONGRESS 2007 in Dubai in October this year.
