Investors’ confidence in the Kingdom's economy, political stability, good international relations and cost‐competitiveness has

produced a groundswell of investment from around the world. All efforts contribute to maintaining a momentum of growth and


Jordan enjoys distinguished foreign trade policies built on the norms of openness and integration. Agreements include GAFTA

with 17 Arab countries, US Free Trade Agreement, association agreement with the European Union, European Free Trade

Association Agreement, and more recently a free trade agreement with Canada. Similar deals are currently being negotiated with

Canada, Turkey, and extending to Latin America.

Jordan’s macro‐economic fundamentals are sound and contributing to the country’s continued growth in 2010.

Liberalization, careful planning, policy reforms, a strong economy, and the creation of ideal conditions for businesses led to a

surge in foreign investment to Jordan Jordan.

A population of 5.9 million out of which 70% is under the age of 30 and enjoys a 2.3% annual growth rate. Literacy rates in the

Kingdom are among the highest in the Middle East obtaining 91.1% in 2007 compared to 89.9% in 2004.

Our infrastructure is set up to serve people, investment, trade and ideas. On one hand, Jordan’s modern transportation

infrastructure helps businesses navigate the world more quickly and comfortably. On the other hand, Jordan has one of the most

liberalized and competitive telecommunication markets in the Middle East and an independent regulator.

The 3rd Largest Deposit in the World…

Oil Shale reserves in Jordan (deep and shallow) are estimated at more than 40

billion metric tons.

The Government of Jordan and Shell Company signed a Concession Agreement

to explore and produce deep oil shale over the next 12‐18 years.

Brazilian Petrobras and the Jordanian partner Kawar Group signed an MOU with

the government of Jordan to explore explore, appraise and exploit Oil Shale in Jordan Jordan.

The project is estimated at a value of USD 3.5 Billion and is expected to produce

up to a 100,000 barrels per day.

operation since 2000.

Pilot projects for the cultivation of Jatropha curcas

underway throughout the Kingdom to help identify the

most suitable areas and the feasibility of large scale

cultivation (Biofuels production).
