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.
