ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The University of Maryland has signed a new agreement that establishes the school’s first formal reciprocal student exchange program with the University of Jordan.

The agreement was signed on Monday during a visit to Jordan by Gov. Martin O’Malley and University of Maryland President Wallace D. Loh.

Officials say that Maryland is the second largest U.S. import market by volume for Jordan, and that Jordan is the 63rd largest export market for Maryland.

Loh’s visit marks the Middle East debut of “MPowering the State,” the year-old collaboration between the University of Maryland campuses in College Park and Baltimore.

School officials say that both institutions are set to formalize a partnership with Tel Aviv University and foster new ties with the University of Haifa.
