PM says Gov't curtailing red tape to lure in investments

Amman, Feb. 12 (Petra) -- Prime Minister Omar Razzaz on Wednesday said his government had made strides in cutting back red tape and bureaucracy investors and businessmen had to go though in the past and now made their business-doing journey in Jordan much easier and lucrative.

Speaking at a meeting with a number of Jordan-based Arab investors following the government announcement of 68 investment opportunities in various sectors of the national economy, the Prime Minister highlighted a set of more stable and investor-friendly legislation the government has introduced or amended, in addition to launching dedicated one-stop-shops.

He stressed that the government is in the process of reengineering processes and restructuring public stakeholders in the investment ecosystem with a view to further facilitate the investment and business-doing journey.
