Investment Reform in Jordan


On 24 November 2013 Jordan became the 46th country to adhere to the OECD Declaration on International Investment and Multinational Enterprises. This adherence bears witness to the determination that Jordan holds towards strengthening the liberalisation of investment, increasing its integration into the world economy and promoting responsible business conduct. In this context, the OECD supports the Government of Jordan in strengthening the reform implementation capacity for investment policy, promotion and services, both through policy reviews and capacity building workshops.
