Jordan and Turkey maintain long ties that go back to the early 1990s. In 1994, Jordan and Turkey established the Turkish-Jordanian Business Council. The aim of the Council is to serve as a model for joint businesses between the two countries. The Council encourages both countries’ private sectors to reciprocate their trade and investments. In 2011, Jordan and Turkey have also signed a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) that removes tariff barriers and facilitates bilateral trade and investments.
Trade agreements—whether multilateral ones through the WTO, plurilateral ones such as the CPTPP, or bilateral agreements between two nations—represent the foundational vehicle through which nations remove trade barriers and deepen trade linkages.
