RJGC's Director General and the Korean companies' chiefs emphasized the advantages of such cooperation in matters of development, disaster early-warning and technology. Moreover, the parties decided to locate permanent stations for satellite navigation systems in Jordan, in order to improve the efficiency of space-based information and cadastral activities.
