Jordan

Jordan

by Anne Carew-Miller

Though small and resource poor, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan plays a crucial role in the affairs of the volatile Middle East. A moderate Arab country, Jordan borders not only Israel and the West Bank, but also Syria, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. This strategic location- along with the nuanced and forward-looking foreign policy crafted by its longtime monarch, King Hussein, and carried on by his son and successor, King Abdullah II?has made Jordan a key to peace and stability in the Middle East.Domestically, Jordan faces many of the same economic hurdles developing nations all over the world must confront. But it also enjoys a tremendous advantage: a highly educated, adaptable workforce.
