Joint report published by the European Commission and the European Union's High-Representative for Foreign Affairs on the bilateral relations between the EU and Jordan for the period 2018-2019, in the context of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP).
The report highlights progress in the key areas as defined in the EU-Jordan Partnership Priorities adopted in 2016.
During the reporting period, with regard to strengthening democratic governance, Jordan recorded legislative improvements on the independence of the judiciary and on women's rights. The presence of Syrian refugees continued to put pressure on Jordan's economy, and the European Union maintained its role in supporting Syrian refugees in Jordan as well as hosting communities. EU-Jordan cooperation also continued on foreign and security policy, private sector development and business environment, energy and resources management, transport and expanded on education, research and innovation and culture programs.
