Prime Minister Bisher Al-Khasawneh had said that the new city will not replace the capital Amman, nor will it be an alternative capital, but that it will host most government ministries, except for the headquarters of the Prime Ministry, the parliament, and the Judicial Council, which will remain in Amman.

He said that the Ministerial Economic Development Committee is in the process of completing the study over the next few days and will give its assessment report to the Lower House.

The first phase of the project will provide approximately 83,000 jobs when it is completed, in 2025, he added.
