The Jordanian government signed an agreement with the Saudi Jordanian Investment Fund (SJIF) on Monday. Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF), which manages $480 billion in assets, owns a majority stake in SJIF.

The $400 million project in Jordan is on a Build, Operate and Transfer of Ownership (BOT) system, where ownership will revert to the Jordanian government at the end of the operating period, as the project is covered by the provisions of the Jordan Investment Fund Law.

The project, which will be implemented by the SJIF, consists of a university hospital with a capacity of 300 beds, 60 outpatient clinics and an emergency care building, and a medical university with a capacity of 600 seats, at a rate of 100 seats per each academic year. It is expected to provide 5,000 job opportunities.

The medical university will operate in partnership with renowned medical schools in Britain and the US.
