A high-level energy dialogue between Jordan and Germany had already been established in 2016. At the margins of the fifth Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue, this dialogue was upgraded to a fully-fledged Energy Partnership between the countries.
To establish this partnership, both governments signed a Joint Declaration of Intent. Germany was represented by the Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy; Jordan was represented by the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources.
Both countries agreed to establish a High-Level Steering Group and to set-up a secretariat with full-time advisors in Germany (Berlin/Eschborn) and Amman. The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) was commissioned with the implementation of the Energy Partnership.
The secretariat serves as a point of contact and coordination regarding the activities of the bilateral Energy Partnership.
