Why Trade with Jordan?


Located in the center of the Middle East, strategically situated between Europe, Asia, and Africa, Jordan enjoys a unique geographical advantage for international business and trade. Jordan has successfully turned this advantage into economic opportunity.  It became a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2000 and signed Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with the U.S. (2000), Canada (2009), Singapore (2004), Europe (Jordan-EU Association Agreement–1997 and Jordan-EFT Agreement) and Middle East-North African countries (GAFTA–1998, AGHADIR–2001, and Turkey–2009).  The country has also engaged in bilateral economic agreements with more than 70 other nations around the world.

These agreements serve to enable business and trade. Jordan boasts various free trade, business development, and industrial zones, which provide streamlined services, and grant customs- and quota-free access to a market of over one billion consumers around the world. Jordan is, without question, one of the most liberalized and business-friendly economies in the region and through further political and economic reforms, it is seeking to maintain and improve upon this reputation.
