Introduction and assessment

With a GDP per capita (PPP) of USD 5 900 in 2011, Jordan is an upper middle-income country. Key economic reforms launched in the 1990s enabled Jordan to achieve important economic and social development objectives. Privatisation, budget and financial sector reforms, and international economic integration (accession to the WTO in 2000 and ratification of a free trade agreement with the United States in 2001 and an association agreement with the European Union in 2002) have helped Jordan to reach a level of macroeconomic stability. Moreover, human development indicators have improved over time and real GDP growth averaged 6% from 2000 to 2011.
