According to the official website for the Jordan-U.S. Business Forum the event was established to:
“…unite key private and public sector leaders from both countries to promote and advance mutually-beneficial business opportunities in Jordan that serve the country and the greater Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. It also aims to enable U.S. companies, through Jordan, to expand their businesses in the Levant and wider MENA regions.
The 2013 Forum features both plenary and industry-specific sessions specifically designed to provide valuable insight into the unique competitive advantages that Jordan has to offer for regional businesses in view of the Arab Spring.”
