The two governments will look for ways to increase Canada’s investment in Jordan by holding meetings of businessmen and economists in both countries.
The two governments will remove any regulations restricting trade, such as double taxation or tariffs on certain goods and rules of origin.
“Canadians highly value the strategic importance of Jordan and its record of democracy, rule of law and human rights. Accordingly, a free trade agreement is a reflection of appreciation and deep friendship,” Emerson says.
Jordan’s free trade agreement with the US, which it signed in December 2001, led to a rapid increase in trade between both countries.
