The European Commission and the Jordanian government have finalized a Cooperation Agreement between the Community and its Member States on the one part and Jordan on the other part.

The Agreement falls within the overall framework of Euro-Mediterranean cooperation, and follows a similar model to the Agreements reached with other Mediterranean partner countries. It provides for regular political dialogue, the gradual creation of a free trade area, and the strengthening of economic cooperation in a range of fields.

In the field of scientific and technological cooperation, the Agreement will encourage the creation of durable links between the parties' scientific communities. In addition, it will strengthen the research capacity of Jordan and stimulate technological innovation, transfer of new technologies and the dissemination of new technologies, with a view to accelerating the adjustment of Jordanian industry.

Under the terms of the Agreement, Jordan will benefit from financial support from the Community through mechanisms such as the MEDA programme. The Agreement's implementation will be supervised by an Association Council, at Ministerial level, and an Association Committee, at official level, composed of representatives of both parties. The Agreement, once concluded, will remain in force for an unlimited time.

The Agreement must now be signed and then concluded before it enters into force. On the Community side, it must be ratified by each Member State as well as approved by the Parliament and Council.
