AMMAN, Oct. 24 (Xinhua) -- The Jordan Phosphate Mines Company (JPMC) and Turkish Transpet Petroleum and Energy Company signed a deal on Tuesday to establish a joint factory for manufacturing phosphoric acid in the kingdom's coastal city of Aqaba, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

The joint project, costing 400 million U.S. dollars, is expected to hold a production capacity of up to 300,000 tonnes per year, representing one of the largest Turkish-Jordanian investments in the phosphate and phosphate fertilizer sector, it added.
