Talking about partisan life, “an accumulative process” that “requires putting public interest before personal benefit, and realistic platforms before personal ambitions”, the King said Jordan should build on past experience before “moving into modernization, which entails providing an enabling legislative and political environment that guarantees wider participation in public life and decision-making, starting with realistic, platform-based political parties”.

Challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, world economic crisis, price hikes, and a food and energy crisis, the Economic Modernization Vision for the next 10 years, public-private sector partnerships, administrative reform, and regional cooperation were tackled, as was Jordan’s effort, in cooperation with different other countries, to counter terrorist and security threats against Arab countries.

His Majesty highlighted the importance of “dialogue as the way to resolve disagreements”, and stressed that the Palestinian cause “cannot be overlooked. It is our first and foremost cause. It is the key to lasting and comprehensive peace and stability”.
