Background on GIZ and the Trade for Employment Project:
The “trade for employment” project is part of the BMZ special initiative “Tackling the root causes of displacement – reintegrating refugees”. The project will be implemented as part of the Regional Refugee & Resilience Plan 2017 To 2018 in Response to the Syria Crisis (3RP). Its aim is to support companies short-term as well as to tackle mid-term structural challenges in trade promotion. In the longer term, it seeks to improve the trade for employment conditions for Jordanian companies.
The Jordanian economy has been experiencing a downward trend since 2011, reflected among others in a negative trade balance, weak business growth and a rising unemployment rate. Conflicts in neighboring countries have exacerbated the situation, leading to an almost complete closure of the borders with Syria and Iraq and to the loss of traditional export markets. An estimated 30 per cent of the Jordanian population lives below the poverty line and the unemployment rate currently stands at 15.5 per cent. The imbalance between labour supply and demand is intensified by the high number of refugees, most of whom are less qualified than the Jordanian population. As a result, Jordan faces the challenge of needing to offset economic losses and counteract the economic downturn, while at the same time integrating a large number of refugees into its economy. In order to tackle these challenges, the government is setting itself the goal of promoting trade, tapping into new markets and thereby generating economic growth and creating jobs as part of Jordan 2025 – A National Vision and Strategy. The National Export Strategy (NES) further focuses in this context on promoting trade-oriented businesses and improving production quality. Despite the efforts of the Jordanian Government and international donors to facilitate access to the European Single Market under the Jordan Compact, Jordanian companies are still struggling to tap new export markets. The necessary conditions for Jordanian companies to increase their trade performance for employment are not yet in place to the required extent.
The project goal is therefore: The conditions for Jordanian companies to increase their trade performance for employment have been improved.
The project implements measures in four outcome areas. In outcome area (1), the project assists the private sector with shaping general conditions conducive to trade by developing the negotiation capacity of chambers of commerce and trade associations and institutionalising dialogue with the government. Outcome area (2) seeks to develop new demand-based trade promotion services and improve existing ones. In outcome area (3), existing barriers to trade are identified and export procedures and processes facilitated. Outcome area (4) is designed to improve recruitment of personnel in trade-oriented businesses, with a particular focus on the placement of Syrian refugees.
The project is scheduled for a term of 4 years and 6 months (from July 2017 to December 2021).
The main responsibilities of this position fall under Outcome Area 4.
