Done it again! Liz Truss celebrates as new £561m trade deal NOW 'into force' https://www.express.co.uk/news/polit...en-uk-politics
The*EU-Jordan Association Agreement* entered into force in May 2002 and forms the legal basis of the relations between the EU and Jordan.
In December 2016, the EU and Jordan adopted*Partnership Priorities*(extended until end 2021) which set out the framework for EU political engagement and enhanced cooperation with Jordan. They also included an*annexed EU-Jordan Compact*outlining mutual commitments and actions to address the impact of the Syrian crisis, and seeking to improve the living conditions of both refugees temporarily living in Jordan and Jordanian citizens.
In July 2016, the EU and Jordan agreed on a simplification of the rules of origin applicable to imports of Jordanian goods into the EU in line with the EU-Jordan Compact. The simplification was further amended in December 2018 to accelerate its uptake. The simplification allows producers in Jordan to use a very advantageous set of rules of origin (equivalent to the ones granted to least-developed countries under the EUís Everything But Arms initiative), on the condition that the production of their goods offers new job opportunities for Syrian refugees. The scheme applies to 52 different product categories including textiles and garments, engineering and electrical products, chemical products, plastic products, and furniture and wood products. This initiative is already opening up new opportunities for trade with the EU, and its use by Jordanian exporters has increased year-on-year.
