Jordan 2025 charts a path for the future and determines the integrated economic and social framework that will govern the economic and social policies based on providing opportunities for all. Its basic principles include promoting the rule of law and equal opportunities, increasing participatory policy making, achieving fiscal sustainability and strengthening institutions.
Jordan 2025 is based on identifying a set of goals that we aspire to, how they can be achieved through certain procedures and policies that will be adopted on the sector level according to a flexible timetable that takes into account the developments on the global and regional levels and how to adapt to those changes.
The vision offers two scenarios depending on the progress achieved and the degree of commitment to implement the agreed upon policies. The baseline scenario assumes adopting some, and not all, of reform measures that are contained in the vision, while targeted scenario assumes taking further measures that would achieve high growth rates.
According to the targeted scenario, the vision intend to achieve real economic growth rates of about 7.5% in 2026, at a rate of 5.7% within the vision period, while the baseline scenario aims to achieve an economic growth rate of 4.8%. With regard to poverty and unemployment, the targeted scenario aims to reduce poverty and unemployment rates to about 8.0% and 9.17% respectively, compared to about 10% and 11.7% respectively in the baseline scenario. The targeted scenario seeks to reduce the ratio of public debt to GDP to 47%, compared to about 60% in the baseline scenario.
The most important goal that the vision seeks to achieve is improving the welfare of citizens and the basic services provided to them, to create a balanced society where opportunities are available to all and the gap between governorates is bridged.
The vision puts Jordanian citizens in the heart of the development process; success and failure are measured by the extent of the progress made at the level of individuals, and therefore the welfare of the community.
Jordan 2025 represents a long-term national vision and strategy rather than a detailed government action plan. It includes more than 400 policies or procedures that should be implemented through a participatory approach between the government, business sector and civil society.
The Prime Minister’s Delivery Unit was re-established to follow up the most important initiatives proposed and overcome the obstacles facing their implementation in order to assure commitment and effective implementation.
