Applying the G20 Training Strategy in Jordan (Phase 2)

STED in the Chemicals and Cosmetics Manufacturing Sector in Jordan

The ILO’s Skills for Trade and Economic Diversification (STED) study on the C&C sector identifies skills needed for promoting international trade and spurring economic growth in the sector. The report reflects on the positioning of the C&C sector in the Jordanian economy from a skills and labour market perspective. It further examines the sector’s employment, export potential and challenges that hinder its competitive position. The C&C is one of the leading economic sectors in Jordan; it accounts for nearly 20 percent of total national exports1 that reached US$ 1.5 billion in 2018.
