WAVTEQ and long-term partner Investment Consulting Associates (ICA) travelled to Amman, Jordan (8th -15th May) to run an investment seminar outlining opportunities in key sectors and explain the layers of support available from the regions national inward investment agency, the Jordan Investment Commission (JIC).
This seminar is just one activity of many that WAVTEQ has been running as part of our prestigious contract with USAID’s Jordan Competitiveness Programme, with other outputs including a 6-week training programme for JIC’s front-line staff and a sector-scoping exercise that produced attractive new marketing materials.
Tailored facilitation services were also offered to half a dozen planned investment projects during the 5-day trip, with site visits and potential partner meetings arranged. With a combined capital investment figure of over $140m and job creation that could top 1300, our aim was to push these projects closer to kick-off stage.
Our project with USAID in Jordan continues for three further months; if you would like to get involved please contact email@example.com
