AMMAN —Alghad— Inbound direct foreign investment in Jordan has declined by 5.3 per cent during the third quarter of last year, Q3-2017, some JOD13.4 million, from JOD249.3 million in Q3-2016, to JOD235.9 million, according to figures by the Central Bank of Jordan (CBJ).

Compared to H1-2017, investment has dropped by approximately 45.7 per cent, nearly JOD198.7 million, from JOD434.6 million during the first six months of 2017.

AlGhad has made several attempts to contact the Investment Commission to get a comment on these statistics, but the commission did not reply.

Jordan’s record inbound investment was JOD2 billion, in 2008, which has dropped to JOD1.06 billion in 2012, in light of the global financial crisis.
