AMMAN — The Jordan Enterprise Development Corporation (JEDCO) on Wednesday announced the start of a tour around the Kingdom for companies that benefit from the corporation's EU funded grants to conduct projects.

The tour focuses on success stories achieved through economic projects benefiting from European grants, and is aimed at spreading awareness on the means and conditions to benefit from the Governorates Development Fund and other corporation programmes like "Accelerate with JEDCO" for speeding up the growth of economic projects.

The tour is scheduled to begin in Amman, where companies that benefit from the grants will speak of the results they achieved and the obstacles they faced, according to a JEDCO statement.

Afterwards, on April 3, the tour will resume in Aqaba and continue throughout the month in Maan, Petra, Tafileh, Karak, Irbid, Jerash, Ajloun, Mafraq and Balqa, concluding in Madaba and Zarqa in early May.

The tour aims at bridging the gap between the corporation and business entrepreneurs to identify their needs and answer their questions through direct interaction, JEDCO CEO Hana Uraidi said in the statement.

She highlighted the importance of the development role played by small- and medium-sized enterprises, which contribute to the growth of local production, enhancing exports and providing jobs.

For his part, EU Ambassador to Jordan Andrea Matteo Fontana said the EU wishes to support Jordan further to be economically flexible and more stable in the Middle East.
