01.04.2005: HRH PRINCE FEISAL HEADS SPORTING DELEGATION TO PROMOTE JORDAN

Amman, Jordan: HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein will on Saturday lead a delegation on a 10-day Tour of the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand and Thailand in a bid to raise Jordan's profile on the international sporting stage.

Prince Feisal, who is President of the Jordan Olympic Committee and Chairman of Jordan Motorsport, will attend Sunday's Bahrain Grand Prix to meet with senior FIA officials and regional figureheads to push Jordan's case for becoming a future round of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC).

The Prince will then fly on to Australia where he is a VIP guest at the meeting of the Commonwealth Games nations in Melbourne. There he will meet with some of the biggest decision makers in sport and his invitation comes as recognition for the work carried out over the last two years with the Jordan Olympic Committee.

His brief stop in Australia will be followed by five days in New Zealand to attend the FIA WRC round based in Auckland. Prince Feisal is expected to meet with leading rally media figures and representatives from the main manufacturers competing in the championship. 

Earlier this year, Prince Feisal announced Jordan's bid to become a future round of the FIA WRC in Monte Carlo and this visit provides him with the last chance to network ahead of the Jordan Rally which takes place from May 5-7.

His return to Jordan will be broken up with a stop over in Thailand where he is expected to meet with senior sports delegates to discuss building bilateral relations through sport.

"Sport is helping to raise Jordan's profile internationally and we are currently working on a number of initiatives that will positively reflect on the Kingdom's economic and social progress," said HRH Prince Feisal.

"The role that sport can play in promoting Jordan globally cannot be underestimated so it is important that we work tirelessly to carry our messages across the region and overseas."
