Here at the Institute of Export & International Trade, we focus on providing you with the most up-to-date information available, allowing you to make informed decisions in your exporting endeavours. Our latest ‘Doing Business in Jordan’ guide is now available for anyone considering business in Middle East/North Africa.

Attracting more than £1 billion worth of UK exports, Jordan is a rapidly developing country & economy with a lot of untapped potential. Due to the low levels of natural resources, Jordan turned its focus into excelling in Science & Technology, quickly becoming the country’s fastest developing economic sectors.

Having joined the World Trade Organisation in 2000 and signed the Jordan-United States Free Trade Agreement, it became the first Arab country to establish such connections with the USA. Jordan also enjoys advanced status with the EU, which has greatly improved exportations to European markets.

The Government of Jordan is committed to creating a win-win situation by helping businesses get started and expand through generous incentives in a variety of zones, including free zones, development zones, and the Aqaba Special Economic Zone. Each zone comes with a unique incentives package catering to sector-specific needs, making Jordan the ideal location to set up, nurture, and grow your business.
