Country Views
Jordan
  • Growth this year is expected to be driven by a recovery in exports and a revival in tourism. Funding from the London initiative should also help finance the current account and maintain reserves at an adequate level. 
  • While there is a large untapped export potential in Jordan’s agricultural sector, another budding growth area is in coding.
  • Higher demand and prices for fertiliser, along with strong partnerships with some Asian partners, could bring new opportunities for growth both downstream and upstream in Jordan’s phosphate supply chain.
