The session emphasized the necessity of collaboration between export promotion organizations and those that give grants and subsidies to assist Jordanian companies in increasing exports.

The chamber said in a statement that the session’s participants discussed priorities for the upcoming two years to help Jordanian companies in the industrial and service sectors recover from the challenges caused by COVID-19 through leveraging Jordanian-American trade.

Fathi Al-Jaghbir, head of the Jordan and Amman Chambers of Industry, said in the statement that the US-Jordan Free Trade Agreement is one of Jordan’s most effective trade agreements in terms of trade volume, smooth administrative processes, and low bureaucracy.

The discussion was part of a 12-month series of events and activities to mark the 20th anniversary of the Jordan-US Free Trade Agreement, which came into force in 2001, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

The US is Jordan’s top export market as over 20 percent of Jordan’s global goods exports go to the US.
