About Jordan

Jordan, an Arab nation bordering Saudi Arabia and Iraq. The country has an upper-middle-income economy. Jordan’s economy is relatively well-diversified. The country suffers an economic and political turmoil due to the large inflow of refugees from nearby countries such as Israel, Iraq, and Syria.

Due to a lack of natural resources Jordan severely depends upon tourism and industry. Jordan’s well-developed industrial sector includes mining, manufacturing, construction, pharmaceuticals, and power
