Population: 8.1 million

Relations between the EU and Jordan are based on an Association Agreement, which came into force in 2002. A joint EU-Jordan Action Plan sets out a political framework for dialogue and outlines a set of priorities that supports Jordan's National Agenda and focuses on political dialogue and reform, trade and social issues. In 2010, Jordan and the EU agreed on an “Advanced Status” partnership.

SIGMA is currently working with:

  • The Anti-Corruption Commission on the review of the public procurement system in order to identify corruption risks in the system and to improve the transparency and integrity of the procurement system.

  • The Civil Service Bureau on developing a competency framework in order to support human resource management, including recruitment, training and performance appraisal.

SIGMA has agreed to work with:

  • The Audit Bureau on developing its annual report in terms of its pertinence, readability and usefulness for the Parliament.
