Moreover, these companies have provided around 63,000 job opportunities and contribute to annual exports exceeding JD1.5 billion, he said, according to a local media outlet.

‘Pivotal role’The success of Jordan's industrial cities lies in their ability to attract high-quality investments across diverse production sectors, resulting in significant job creation for the country's youth and providing substantial support to the national economy, he said.

In a press statement, Juwaid emphasized the pivotal role of these cities in the development of provinces, their contribution to the equitable distribution of development gains, and their growing impact on national exports and the gross domestic product.

Juwaid said that these achievements would not have been possible without the unwavering support of the Hashemite leadership, which has positioned Jordan as an exemplary model for the establishment, development, management, and marketing of industrial cities.

Jordanian expertiseAs a testament to their success, many countries now seek Jordanian expertise in the field of industrial city development, he added.

Looking ahead, Jordan's industrial cities have entered the bicentennial of the Jordanian state with strength and determination, he said.

They continue to make significant strides through a series of continuous achievements and advancements in the establishment, management, and marketing of these industrial zones, he added.

Additionally, these cities have become hosts to promising Jordanian industries that have expanded their presence from Jordan to various parts of the world.
