Singapore–Jordan Free Trade Agreement (SJFTA)
The SJFTA is Singapore's first FTA with a country in the Middle East, and is Jordan's first FTA with a country in Asia.
Free Trade Agreements are treaties which make trade and investment between two or more economies easier. The Singapore–Jordan Free Trade Agreement (SJFTA) was concluded in April 2004 and entered into force in August 2005. It is Singapore’s first FTA with a country in the Middle East, and is Jordan’s first FTA with a country in Asia.
The SJFTA lets Singapore companies enjoy near-zero tariff treatment for their exports to Jordan, safeguards market access and ensures a more predictable operating environment for service suppliers. Find out how you can benefit from tariff concessions with Jordan.
