Organization context and scope
The garment industry is one of the leading export industries in the country. In 2019, garment and related exports exceeded USD 1.9 billion and accounted for about 23 percent of Jordan’s total exports, with 11 percent growth compared to 2018. The US continued to be Jordan’s largest garment export due to the established Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the two countries.
The Better Work Jordan (BWJ) Programme aims to improve labour standards and enterprise performance in the apparel industry. BWJ was established at the Ministry of Labour request in 2007 and began operations in mid-2008. It is a partnership between the UN’s International Labour Organization (ILO) and the World Bank’s International Finance Corporation (IFC).
At the enterprise level, BWJ’s activities are comprised of two stages. The first stage is designed to identify the needs of enterprises in terms of labour compliance. The second stage focuses on advisory and training services. BWJ works with participating enterprises to develop and implement a unique improvement plan that systematically addresses all violations and deviations from the applicable laws and standards. BWJ’s goal is upgrading enterprise economic and labour standards performance through customized training and remediation.
On the sectoral level, BWJ supports stakeholder organizations representing government, workers, and employers by building their capacity to develop a competitive sector providing employment opportunities in conditions of freedom, equity, security, and human dignity. To this end, BWJ is undertaking several initiatives. These include capacity-building programs for the Ministry of Labour and the General Trade Union of Workers in Textile, Garment, and Clothing and a policy-oriented research project on the apparel sectors’ value-added economy.
