We have had a complete shut down for some of the factories, while others are currently downsizing their production lines, which places both business owners and workers at unease. However, during these hard times, a sense of unity has emerged, which is bringing companies together in order to surpass this unfortunate series of events.

The Jordanian garment industry has faced a difficult year as a result of COVID-19 but has shown remarkable resilience in the face of the pandemic. Better Work Jordan has over ten years of experience in the garment industry and has successfully built strong collaborations with the tripartite partners representing government, workers and employers. While Better Work Jordan primarily works with the exporting garment sector in Jordan, the programme has recently expanded to include factories in other sectors, including plastics, chemicals and engineering.
