The American-Jordanian Expo in Amman, Jordan, scheduled for June 7-8, will give American companies an opportunity to showcase their product lines to Jordanian and Iraqi importers, distributors, representatives and agents.
The annual event is sponsored by the American Chamber of Commerce in Jordan.
“Amman becomes a meeting ground for business interests from throughout the region,” said Sherwin Pomerantz of the Eastern Mediterranean Regional Office of the Georgia Department of Economic Development. “Because people are not traveling to Iraq, they have set up satellite operations in Amman and [elsewhere in] Jordan, making it the best place for Americans to meet potential clients.”
The expo is not sector-specific, but several areas that have high export potential for U.S. exporters have been highlighted, including computing and networking, healthcare and medical services and equipment, environmental technologies, information technology and security and safety equipment.
Although Jordan has a gross domestic product of only $10 billion annually, it is a trade junction in the Middle East, where business people from across the Arab world converge during the summer because it is cooler than most of the region including Saudi Arabia, according to Mr. Pomerantz.
