The project will be funded by the Government of Italy and implemented by UNIDO in partnership with GSC.

Yasmeen Khresat on behalf of Yousef Al-Shamali, the minister of Industry Trade and Supply, Eleonora Banfi on behalf of Emilio Cabasino, the head of AICS Amman, the UNIDO country representative Sulafa Mdanat, and the acting CEO of GSC Dina Seisah, and more than 20 textile sector representatives attended the launching ceremony.

“Creative Jordan” aims to support the textile value chain to create employment and economic opportunities in Jordan. Apart from the provision of technical training to the actors of the value chain, one of the objectives of this project is to create new successful brands and collections under two fashion brands of “JO! By Creative Jordan” and “Khayt,” which are the storytelling umbrella of the fashion sector and be further promoted in the international markets.

The project will play a key role in enhancing economic opportunities and job creation in Jordan’s textile and fashion value chains through capacity building and effective linkages. 

The prospective outcome of the project is streamlined to be in line with the Jordanian law and with targets set in Jordan’s Economic Growth Plan 2018-2022 and Jordan’s vision 2025.
