As a means of supporting the Jordanian government’s policy on economic development and growth and the need to modernise the transport sector, a Trade and Transport Facilitation Programme (TTF) was designed and signed in December 2009 between the EU and the Government of Jordan. The TTF is a 33 M EUR Financing Agreement which implementation period will end in December 2015. The overall objective of the TTF is to contribute to Jordan’s integration into the global economy by reducing trade-related costs and developing a multi-modal transport sector Since 2010, a team of short term experts was mobilised annually in order to assess progress in the achievement of the agreed matrix of reform benchmarks. AETS is assigned to: - Collect and transmit to the EU Delegation all the relevant information and documentation concerning performance in fulfilment of the reform benchmarks of the Trade and Transport Facilitation programme. - Analyse factually and on a "realised", "partially realised" & "non-realised" basis, the conformity of the documentation obtained with the modalities of confirmation stipulated in the reform benchmark matrix of the Trade and Transport Facilitation Programme for the pending benchmarks. - Assess the compliance of the General Conditions and in particular to review the stability of the macro-economic framework. - Give an indicative/realistic timetable for the compliance of pending conditions in order to fit into the timeframe of the TTF programme, which operational implementation period ends in December 2015.
