EU officials took part on June 5th in a field visit to the Garment Design and Training Services Centre and the Noorway Factory, as part of the regional “Development of Clusters in the Cultural and Creative Industries in the southern Mediterranean” project.

Worth a total of 5.6 million Euro, funded by the European Union and the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation, the project is implemented by the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) in Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco.

Launched at the end of 2015, Jordan’s CCI project entails the development of the Amman Fashion Cluster, the first creative cluster in the textile sector in the Kingdom. Thanks to EU funding, the cluster is providing technical assistance to small and medium enterprises in the local market and helping them gain access to new markets both locally and internationally.
