Jordan: a small country with huge potential
Faced by huge challenges, yet a shining example of moderation
From its inception back in the 1920's never possessed the geographic and natural resources of a major regional economy. Without oil, and with vastly underdeveloped hinterland, Jordan grew to be a shining example of a small, dynamic, hospitable country that relies mainly on trade, aid and tourism.
While Jordan inherited and gained in days past its fair share of burdens, waves of refugees, lack of natural resources, underdeveloped working sector...etc. Yet, its major capital is its people. Jordan's society has long been the shining example of tolerance, moderation and the voice of reason in a troubled neighborhood.
Today, Jordan boasts a young breed of professionals, entrepreneurs and artists who are making waves in the local and regional scenes. Jordan has a unique and flavorful mix of east and west, rich and poor, skilled professionals and just learning, conservative and religious with less conservative and religious. In fact, the very fabric of society is filled with many ethnic and tribal origins and colors, which is what makes this country great.
Jordan is FUN!
Jordan has been an oasis of peace and stability in the region in spite of tremulous regional wars all around. That is what afforded it a niche in the tourism industry, aided by a very warm and welcoming culture and a variety of cuisines to go along with it. The landscape is rich and variegated. From the pine and oak rich mountains of Ajloun to the moon like rock formations of Wadi Rum, to the lowest point on earth at the Dead Sea, the visitor is always engaged and has something to enjoy. Let's not forget that Jordan itself is extremely rich with history and archaeology that stretches as far back as millennia before Christ. Petra, Jarash and several castles and ancient remains are always on top of the tourists agendas.
