Under the patronage of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II, the first EU-Jordan Business Forum will be held on June 11, 2024.

Organized by the European Union Delegation to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in collaboration with the Ministry of Investment, the Forum aims to boost economic cooperation, encourage investment opportunities, and enhance trade relations between the EU and Jordan.

In a message ahead of the Forum, H.E Kholoud Saqqaf, Jordan’s Minister of Investment, said: "The EU-Jordan Business Forum ‘24 is a pivotal event that underscores Jordan's commitment to fostering a business-friendly environment and attracting foreign investment. By collaborating closely with our European partners, we are dedicated to unlocking new avenues for economic growth and innovation, thereby positioning Jordan as a key hub for investment in the region."

For his part, EU Ambassador Chatzisavas said: “The EU-Jordan Business Forum is a testament to the enduring relationship between Jordan and the European Union, based on a shared vision for economic prosperity and sustainable development. The Forum will allow Jordanian and European companies, as well as partners, to showcase their products and services, and offer a space to develop business to business dialogue.’

The one-day Forum will bring together key stakeholders from both regions, including H.E. Saleh Al-Kharabsheh, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, H.E. Ahmad Hanandeh, Minister of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship, the Vice-President of the European Investment Bank Ms Gelsomina Vigliotti, government officials, business leaders, investors, public and private banks, and industry experts.
