The Franco-Jordanian Business Club (CAFRAJ) was established in August 1998. Its creation has coincided with the excellent climate of bilateral economic situations that prevailed following important investments between France and Jordan.
CAFRAJ became a member of the UCCIFE (Union of the French Chambers of Commerce and Industry Abroad) in June 2002. Thus becoming the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Jordan.
The main objectives of CAFRAJ are to develop the commercial, economic, cultural and social cooperation between France and Jordan by promoting the exchange of people, experience, equipment and capital and encouraging investment.
Our Chamber has two principal missions :
