Jordan has made an inventive proposal to the International community which was officially presented in London Conference on the 4th,Feb; The Jordan Compact which is a new holistic approach between Jordan and the International Community to deal with the Syrian Refugee Crisis.

Under this Compact, Jordan offered to create new hopes and jobs for Syrians and Jordanians alike; to issue work permits to Syrians willing to work in Jordan , and to also allow them establish their own businesses in Jordan.

To implement this proposal, Jordan requested the EU to facilitate trade related issues especially the stringent rules of origin issues to enable products by Syrian refugees in Jordan to find new markets.

In response, the EU offered a 10 year period of facilitation of Rules of Origin (RoO), and a decision has been adopted by Jordan-EU Association Committee on the 19th of July 2016 to simplify the RoO.

In light of this, Jordan aims at attracting more investment from Europe and other regions as well. At the same time, the Government is working on attracting businesses to invest in with a view to supporting refugees' livelihoods through direct employment, which would give them the opportunity to live dignified lives and to maintain their skills up-to-date.
