On 9 January 2019, H.E. Ambassador Leena Al-Hadid, Jordan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations and other international organizations in Vienna, on behalf of Ambassador Zaid Al-Lozi, Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Expatriates Jordan and ICMPD’s Director General Michael Spindelegger, signed a Seat Agreement between the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and ICMPD.

Jordan and ICMPD are long-standing partners in the field of migration governance. ICMPD has been cooperating with Jordan over the last twenty years and operating in Amman since 2016. A number of programmes in areas such as migration governance, trafficking in human beings, migration and development, border management and others have been carried out and coordinated from the Jordan office ever since.

The signature of the Seat Agreement is an acknowledgement of the friendly relations between ICMPD and Jordan which will serve to deepen cooperation. It further allows ICMPD to increase its operational capacity in Jordan. The signature procedure took place in ICMPD’s headquarters in Vienna, Austria.
