The USAID Jordan Economic Development Program (SABEQ) is supporting the Mafraq and
Irbid Development Zones in their efforts to attract new high-quality investments, through
providing technical assistance and consulting services. One of the critical factors affecting
the decision of the investor to invest in development zones is the quantity, quality and
availability of labor force. In order to provide investors with valid information about the labor
force, a scientific study of labor situation reflecting supply and demand is required.
Therefore, the SABEQ program contracted Dajani Consulting to carry out the Labor Supply
and Demand Study first in Mafraq and then in Irbid, to identify the labor profile and the gaps
within the labor market.
