AMMAN - The US CNBC network conducted an interview with His Majesty King Abdullah II that will be transmitted over the next few days.

The interview, which was conducted by CNBC's Middle East reporter Hadley Gamble, focuses on Jordan's economic competitive advantages, efforts to achieve economic development in a number of sectors, support for entrepreneurs and their businesses, and development of the education sector.

During the interview, the King said that challenges facing the region, should not be an excuse to hamper political and economic development, noting that crises have always been an incentive for Jordan to press ahead with development and modernization.

His Majesty also reviewed Jordan's secure and stable investment environment, which is also open to major economies, in addition to the Kingdom's distinguished geographical location, which makes it a strategic gate to the Middle East and world markets.

The interview comes prior to the World Economic Forum on the Middle East and North Africa, which will be hosted by Jordan at the Dead Sea on May 21-23 with the participation of 800 political and economic figures from the region and the world.

During the forum, a number of mega investment projects are expected to be announced, and agreements on projects related to alternative energy and infrastructure are expected to be signed.
