A Government minister is leading a business delegation to Jordan to encourage stronger links between the two countries.

Business Secretary Sajid Javid will visit an area hosting Syrian businesses to explore their investment potential.

He said: "It is obvious that Jordan faces significant regional uncertainty but by building greater business connections and strengthening the economic ties between our two countries we can help to bring economic and national security.

"I am excited to be here with some great businesses looking at the growing opportunities in Jordan and meeting the future of Jordan's small business community."

Representatives from firms including Mott MacDonald, JCB and George by Asda will accompany the minister.
