AMMAN — The Jordan Chamber of Industry (JCI) lauded as "important" the government's decision to allow the families of non-Jordanian investors to work in all professions owned by the family, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.اضافة اعلان

Petra said the family members seeking to work must be listed on investment cards, issued by the Ministry of Investment and Jordan Free and Development Zones Group (JFDZ).

In a statement on Wednesday, JCI head Fathi Jaghbir said the decision is the fruit of "true" partnership with the government and aims at supporting the Kingdom's business environment.

The government’s decision also exempts the investors' families from the requirement to obtain a work permit. It seeks to support the investment climate, which would diversify expertise, facilitate investor transactions and enhance the business environment, according to Jaghbir.

Additionally, he said the decision contributes to attracting non-Jordanian investments to the Kingdom, and develops the existing businesses locally, especially since family business is "an existing and vital model" for companies operating in Jordan.
