Nsour, who spoke to the concluding session of Jordan Int’l Investment Conference, added the government will soon issue a range of regulations to govern non-Jordanian investments in a bid to attract foreign investment to the Kingdom.
Our top priority is to attract investment , create a resilient environment for investors and focus on investments with added value , he added, saying Jordan seeks true partners capable of executing mega-projects in the upcoming period.
The government’s measures, he affirmed, helped mitigate the adverse repercussions of the global financial meltdown on the national economy , underlining it didn’t affect the flow of investments to the country.
“Jordan is a small market, yet it successfully signed a free trade agreement with Canada and soon with Turkey, ” he pointed out.
The two- day event , which brought together leading policy-makers, investors, and int’l businessmen, discussed investment opportunities in Jordan and the role of the public and private sectors in boosting its investment environment
