Forum ‘Building a sustainable presence in export markets’ for Jordanian diplomats

In 2019, we conducted a three-day forum in The Hague in which 14 Jordanian diplomats took part. The forum aimed at introducing Jordanian commercial attachés in the EU to enhance national exports.

The most important goal was to optimise the roles and tasks of CAs/diplomats in coherent JCI export coaching services.

Other objectives were:

  • Increasing the international business performance of Jordanian SMEs by improving the services of Jordanian diplomats.
  • Co-creating advice on how to improve the mandate of the ‘Diplomats for Exporters’ network.
  • Sharing good practices of the services of diplomats/commercial attachés.
