Wells discussed opportunities for firms in the park to continue expanding their exports under the FTA and under the new EU market access secured through the Jordan Compact, the US embassy in Jordan said in a statement.
“We are proud of the over 800 per cent growth in bilateral trade since the US-Jordan FTA was signed. We discussed the exporters' strong relationships with a number of high-end US firms. We also aim to expand commercial ties and seize new market opportunities, like those offered by the Jordan Compact, to create jobs for Jordanians and the refugees Jordan hosts,” Wells said.
Ad Dulail Industrial Park exports 35 per cent of Jordanian garment products to the US. Its exports reached $465 million in 2015 and $234 million during the first half of 2016, remaining on trend for another record year.
The park hosts firms like Needle Craft, which produces 25 per cent of Under Armour's global products, and Eam Maliban, which produces for high end US brands like Burberry, Talbots, and Banana Republic.
Under a 2015 Memorandum of Understanding, USAID's Workforce Development Program is working with companies in Ad Dulail Industrial Park to train over 500 Jordanians to be employed in the park, as well as supporting Syrian refugee participation in the programme. (RKS)
