Irbid is the second largest city in Jordan, and is the hub of business and economic activities
in the Northern Region. This study is undertaken as part of the Sustainable Achievement of
Business Expansion and Quality (SABEQ) program initiative to facilitate the start-up and
operation of businesses in the Governorate of Irbid. The study will compile an inventory of
business services provided to prospective business owners in Irbid. To our knowledge, this
information has not been collected into a single inventory before for Governorates outside
the Capital and as such, will also be useful in documenting the actual process and the
challenges that are faced by businesses outside Amman.
