Jordan is a country with vast business growth potential and many competitive advantages.

Jordan’s stability and strategic location have been reinforced with sound economic policies and a vision that ensures that Jordan will become a key market in the MENA region and an active partner in development of neighboring markets. Laws and policies are changing to enable a dynamic and successful investment and business climate. Jordan has taken concrete steps to drive economic growth, assist Syrian refugees, and project itself as a reliable partner internationally and in the region. Over the past decade, Jordan has focused on reforming its investment and business policies, improving its reputation as an attractive destination for investment, diversifying its economy, and stimulating business.


The Investment Law No. 30 was passed and implemented in 2014 to ensure that the Jordanian business environment enjoys an ever-improving legal framework and business conditions. Numerous specialized development zones across Jordan have been established to host multinational businesses with complimentary business partners and communities that benefit from very strong incentives and exemptions. Investors will have the potential of serving over a billion customers, thanks to the numerous free trade agreements that Jordan maintains with trade partners across the globe.
