Economic Development - Jordan-en

Sustainable and Inclusive Economic Growth

The Netherlands supports Jordan in fostering a more resilient and inclusive economy in line with ambitions projected in the Jordanian government’s Economic Modernisation Vision 2022-2033 and other national strategies.

​​​​​​​The focus is on promoting a thriving private sector in order to generate employment opportunities, in particular for vulnerable people. Our aim is to find ways to strengthen Jordanian Micro, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (MSMEs) to grow their businesses, and employ more people under decent work conditions.

Objectives of our 'Sustainable and Inclusive Economic Growth' programming in Jordan

​​​​​​​The Netherlands support is focused on the following three goals:
  1. Supporting economic reforms

    This is done with a view to enhancing the business climate and enabling environment for MSMEs. The goal is to unlock the potential of the Jordanian private sector.
  2. Promoting access to finance

    The Netherlands contributes to enhancing access to finance for Jordanian MSMEs, with a focus on women, youth and refugees, and thereby to financial inclusion. This includes working with Jordanian financial institutions on SME lending, giving special attention to innovative and climate (green) financing.​​​​​​
  3. Enhancing Jordanian MSMEs competitiveness

    ​​​​​​​This will be done by providing firm-level capacity support to companies with the aim of enabling them to generate more employment, green their operations and maximise their exports. This includes support on incubation and acceleration for start- and scale-ups, export readiness and facilitation of market access.
