The World Bank Group said in a statement that recovery efforts represent an opportunity for ongoing reforms towards investment-led growth, on the one hand, and for the promotion of a green economy, on the other.

The World Bank delegation visited Jordan on July 25–26, following the appointment of Jean-Christophe Carret as the new regional director of the Levant Department (Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Iran).

The delegation held several meetings with government representatives, and visited a number of programs supported by the World Bank, including the Emergency Cash Transfer Project, implemented by the National Aid Fund, and the Youth, Technology and Jobs Project, implemented by the Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship.

It expressed appreciation for the long partnership between Jordan and the World Bank Group.

Discussions highlighted priority programs currently being implemented and aimed at supporting economic reforms, engaging the private sector, encouraging economic empowerment of youth and women, and creating job opportunities, as well as strengthening social protection, agricultural development, health, education, municipal service delivery, and actions related to climate change.
