Why Doing Business in Jordan? Jordan’s sound relations with its neighbours in the Gulf as well as with the US place it in an ideal position for successful business projects. An increase in foreign investments, as well as emphasis on the IT and tourism sectors have further spurred its economic growth. Today, the government is actively involved in economic liberalisation and further privatisation projects ensuring exciting prospects for doing business in Jordan. Jordanians are known for their friendliness, hospitality and warmth but without a comprehensive understanding of the business and social cultural nuances, doing business in Jordan can be a frustrating experience.
Communicaid’s Doing Business in Jordan cultural awareness courses are designed for those individuals and teams that wish to understand the Jordanian approach to doing business. These Doing Business in Jordan cultural training programmes will enable you to develop more successful business relationships with Jordanian clients, colleagues and suppliers. Through a combination of in-depth background information and practical tips, you will also learn how to diminish cultural differences and develop effective business solutions.
