The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has been on the path of gradual liberalisation and economic
reform for decades, a path that was accelerated by King Abdullah II’s accession to the throne.
Economic Reform has been at the top of the government’s agenda in the years following the Arab
Spring. Jordan finds itself under great pressure to increase economic growth, create sustainable
employment and transform its economy into a knowledge-based one. As such, the country stands
to gain significantly from attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and promoting Domestic
Direct Investment (DDI).
