President to Sign U.S. - Jordan Free Trade Agreement
Statement by the President
I commend the Congress for advancing trade and relations with Jordan, a valued friend and partner. The U.S. Jordan Free Trade Agreement will promote peace and security in the region, while creating jobs and new investment opportunities in both countries. The agreement demonstrates Jordans strong commitment to economic reform and sends a strong signal to Jordan, as well as other countries in the region, that support for peace and economic reform yields concrete benefits. I look forward to signing this important legislation.
