JORDAN
Our Featured Country

Despite the international crisis and some big macroeconomic disequilibria (such as debt, budget deficits and poverty) business opportunities are numerous. Jordan is a dynamic country implementing reforms which encourage businesses and create some new potential. Privatizations have been launched and some industrial parks are being created. To learn more about the country, take a look at Jordan Investment.

Thanks to good relations and the Jordan-US Free Trade Agreement, signed in 200 and ratified in 2001, Jordan and the US enjoy close trade relations. US companies import mostly articles of apparel and clothing accessories, precious stones and pearls, machinery and mechanical appliances, plastics, wood products and pharmaceuticals. Aircraft, cars, machinery and mechanical appliances, cereals, electrical machinery and equipment are the main products imported by Jordan from the USA. Owing to the potential of the country, there are increased opportunities, particularly in pharmaceuticals, textiles and automotive products. And opportunities in the sectors of information technology, agri-food and cosmetics should also be explored.

Find out how companies are taking advantage of the Jordan-US Free Trade Agreement by visiting the website of the Jordan-US FTA. Or get some assistance directly by contacting the Jordan Economic and Commerce Bureau of the Embassy of Jordan in Washington.
