This report examines Jordan's investment regime and provides recommendations on how, despite the regional unrest and the slow recovery of the global economy strongly affecting economic activities, the authorities can implement structural reform to make the country a more attractive investment destination and to support development.
In recognition of recent efforts to enhance its investment climate, Jordan has become the 46th country to adhere to the OECD Declaration on International Investment and Multinational Enterprises. As an adherent to the Declaration, Jordan commits to providing national treatment to foreign investors – within the limits of the legal restrictions mentioned in the Review – and to promoting responsible business conduct, in line with the OECD Guidelines on Multinational Enterprises, including through the establishment of a National Contact Point. In turn, the country benefits from similar assurances from other adherents to treat Jordanian investors fairly.
