Improving Public-Private Dialogue and Empowering SMEs in Jordan

JCIBy Anan Zeitoun 


Though Public-Private Dialogue (PPD) is by no means a new concept in Jordan, it has in recent years seen an uptick in interest as a means for promoting private sector potential in Jordan’s economy. Properly-implemented PPD can lead to better, more appropriate legal regulations, and increase private trust in public institutions.


Building on the success and conclusions of the first SME Regional conference, The Jordan Chamber of Industry (JCI) organized the 2016 conference with the theme “empower SMEs . . . Release the Potential.”


The conference examined how Chambers of Industry (CBAs) could effectively use PPD to maximize the potential of local small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in different countries.
