EBRD forecast for Jordan’s Real GDP Growth in 2024 2.5%
Economic growth in Jordan reached 2.5 per cent in 2022, led by a broad-based acceleration in most sectors, including tourism, but slower growth in the mining sector. Growth picked up to 2.8 per cent year on year in the first quarter of 2023, driven by improved performance in agriculture, construction, transport, and tourism (as tourism receipts finally surpassed pre-pandemic levels).
