Jordan Daily – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Local Administration Tawfiq Kreishan on Sunday advised foreign investors to explore investment projects available outside the capital, especially in the governorates
Kreishan emphasised the importance of leveraging multiple incentives, the available workforce and competitively priced land.
During his participation in the second day of 8th Conference of Jordanian Expatriate Businessmen and Investors, Kreishan underscored that Jordan’s regional stability and security constitute a solid base for successful investments.
Under the theme “Sustainable Development in the Governorates”, Kreishan said that the municipalities play a pivotal role in bolstering investments and furthering Jordan’s development goals by granting licences to companies and investors.
Kreishan also stated that a comprehensive plan to transform Ajloun into a tourist destination will be launched soon.
This blueprint will extend to other regions of the Kingdom, he noted, adding that a similar plan for the Naour region is scheduled to be unveiled by the end of the year.
Kreishan also detailed several projects undertaken in collaboration with the World Bank in many municipalities in Jordan, including projects targeting Ajloun and Jerash’s water, agriculture, food, apparel, tailoring and heritage market sectors.
