The EU and Jordan have today officially established a Mobility Partnership. EU Commissioner for Home Affairs, Cecilia Malmström, Jordan's Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh, and the Ministers responsible for migration from the twelve EU Member States participating in this partnership signed a Joint Declaration establishing a framework for future cooperation in the field of migration and mobility.

Through this partnership the EU and Jordan agree to ensure that the movement of persons is managed as effectively as possible, allowing for concrete actions to further improve the situation in the way migration, asylum and borders are dealt with. The key features of the Partnership are strengthening efforts to derive all the potential benefits from migration and linking them to development.
