Jordan Market Spotlight

Investment Landscape

Jordan is an increasingly attractive environment for business and investment. This starts with a long history of growth and stability and a young, highly educated, and dynamic workforce—one of the most skilled, competitive, and productive in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region. Jordan also offers world-class business, logistics, and communications infrastructure with multiple free trade and special economic zones. These advantages and Jordan’s strategic location can be easily leveraged to access nearly 1.5 billion consumers through several trade agreements in some of the world’s largest consumer markets including the United States and the European Union.

USAID’s Role

For over 70 years, the United States has been a trusted partner to Jordan, supporting its amazing story of development and economic growth. The USAID Mission to Jordan is essential to this longstanding partnership and collaborates with a wide range of companies and investors to achieve the mutual objectives of peace, stability, and sustained inclusive economic growth. We work with large multinational corporations, local Jordanian businesses, trade associations, service providers, and investors across nearly every sector and industry. With a strong on-the-ground presence, deep expertise, and close relationships with Jordanian government, USAID supports businesses as they expand their operations and investments, including initiatives to 1) enhance the implementation of the Government of Jordan’s Economic Reform Agenda, 2) advance the private sector’s capacity to compete, and 3) increase women’s participation in the economy.
