This report presents the results of OECD's comprehensive review of Jordan's investment policy.

Executive summary

Jordan’s economy has benefitted from key reforms since the 1990s, helping to attain macroeconomic stability and improve human development indicators. The GDP per capita (PPP) reached USD 5 900 in 2011, positioning Jordan as an upper middle income country. However, structural reforms are still needed, as the country remains highly dependent on foreign aid and remittances. The current regional unrest, in particular the deteriorating situation in Syria and the remaining instability in Iraq, and the slow recovery of the global economy strongly affect economic activities.
