Leaders International for Economic Development (LI) and the Crown Prince Foundation (CPF) have officially entered into a collaboration agreement to sustain the Corporate Entrepreneurship Responsibility Alliance (CERA) project in Jordan. Supported by funding from the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, this partnership underscores a shared commitment to encouraging social responsibility and strengthening local supply chains within the Kingdom.
The agreement was signed by the country manager of Leaders International, Hamzeh Shamaileh and CEO of CPF, Tamam Mango, marking the commencement of this impactful collaboration.

This collaboration signifies a shared vision for a brighter future, where local companies play a crucial role in international supply chains, boosting growth and sustainability within the business sector. Through effective collaboration, Leaders International and the Crown Prince Foundation are poised to facilitate positive change, driving economic growth and social development in Jordan.
