  • Description

    Development projects being undertaken by the Jordanian Valley Commission are progressing according to plan.

    The main focus of agricultural development in Jordan is centred on the Jordan valley, where about GBP 32 million is being spent on expanding irrigated areas and resettling about 137,000 people.

    Other projects include electric power for the Jordan Valley, a telephone network, the construction of 38 new villages and the reconstruction of the Al-Karameh Refugee Camp.

    The development of the Jordan Valley, is being supported by loans from the World Bank, the United States, West Germany, and the Kuwait and Abu Dhabi Funds for Arab economic development. Abu Dhabi announced a loan of GBP 2 million for the construction of the King Talal dam on the Zarqa river in January this year.
