Following the success of the first Austrian Trade Mission to Jordan in 2015, the Austrian Embassy – Commercial Section (Advantage Austria) organized its second Trade Mission to Jordan from November 6th - 8th 2016.

The Austrian companies met with potential business partners and learned more about the opportunities that the Jordanian market has to offer. Part of the Mission also focused on neighboring Iraq and its possibilities. 

Advantage Austria discussed economic and trade cooperation in the private sector with Jordanian institutions stressing the interest of Austrian companies in exporting but also looking into the framework for investments.  

Commercial Counsellor, Isabel Schmiedbauer: “Our participating companies stressed the positive B2B meetings they had and used the different events for discussions with their counterparts. We believe that Trade Missions also are an ideal platform to network and broaden their contacts."

Jordan’s exports amounted to 5.1 million JOD in 2015, with garments, phosphate and fertilizers being the most important export products.

Jordan imports pharmaceutical products, machines, paper and other goods from Austria. Imports amounted to 50.4 million JOD in 2015.
