The main purpose of the session was to confirm partnership priorities for the 2021–2027 period and to take stock of progress in EU–Jordan bilateral relations. The chairs also led a discussion on the situation in the region (Middle East Peace Process, Syria, trilateral cooperation between Egypt, Jordan and Iraq) and the Russian aggression on Ukraine.

On this occasion, the Association Council session was held in Jordan, as an exception, to show full support to Jordan as a key partner in the region.
