AMMAN — The total number of projects benefiting from the exemptions, tax incentives and customs facilities offered by the Jordan Investment Commission (JIC) to investors in the IT sector by the end of 2017 reached 246 projects with a total investment of JOD185 million.

A seminar held by the JIC to highlight services and facilities offered to emerging investment companies showed that the number of labourers expected to be employed in these projects, that benefit from tax and customs exemptions, is estimated to reach 5,500 employees.
