The Jordan U.S. Investment Forums, which are organized annually by the American Chamber of Commerce in Jordan, provide a platform for enhancing U.S. – Jordan business ties.

The 2018 Forum will have a particular focus on motivating companies to address the unprecedented challenge of the refugee crisis in Jordan, thereby enabling the private sector to grow their business while directly helping refugees and host communities by investing in and sourcing from Jordan.

The Forum will be held in two cities of New York on June 25th and in San Francisco on June 28th, and is being organized in partnership with the Tent Foundation and Connect.JO and is receiving support from USAID’s Jordan Competitiveness Program. 

The Forum is will bring together senior Jordanian government officials, international development organizations, and distinguished representatives of Jordanian and American businesses to highlight Jordan’s strong business and investment climate.

Join us to:

  • Learn about the investment and business climate in Jordan.
  • Identify opportunities for your company to expand its operations in Jordan.
  • Understand best practices about doing business in Jordan and forge new partnerships.
  • Hear from high-level officials from the Jordanian government and international institutions about national and global initiatives to help facilitate business investments in Jordan. 

Please email lana.nimri@amcham.jo with any questions about this forum.
