This Summary Report on the Skills Needs of the Pharmaceutical Sector in Jordan was prepared under the ILO’s Skills for Trade and Employment project, which is the Jordanian component of the global Applying the G20 Training Strategy project. It reports on the findings of a forward-looking study of the sector’s skills needs based on the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Skills for Trade and Economic Diversification (STED) methodology. The methodology combines sector level technical research and consultation with the social partners and other stakeholders to develop a shared analysis of the trade and skills challenges facing the sector, and proposals as to what should be done on skills to meet these challenges and secure a positive future for the sector.
The report sheds light on the situation of the Jordanian pharmaceutical sector from a skills and labour market perspective. It reflects on Jordan’s exports within the region and to other international markets, examining the challenges that affect the sector in improving its competitive position, especially in comparison with competitors in regional markets from within the region and from Europe and Asia.
