Aqaba Industrial City raises regional economic hopes

The Aqaba International Industrial City opens its gates next week. Amer Al Majali, director general of the Industrial Estate Corp (IEC), said the new zone expects to revitalize investments in the Aqaba area.

The Aqaba International Industrial City opens its gates next week. Amer Al Majali, director general of the Industrial Estate Corp (IEC), said the new zone expects to revitalize investments in the Aqaba area. A $17 million agreement was signed Monday between the IEC and the US-basedcompany ABB-SUSA-INA. The agreement designates the American company as builder for the infrastructure of the new industrial estate. This is expected to begin a year from now. Al Majali said his corporation's intention is to make all the industrial estates more convenient for international investors to come and employ their money in the Kingdom. The estate will receive energy from a $5 million power generating station built by the US Agency for International Development (USAID). The industrial zone was constructed on an area of 530,000 square meters and is expected to provide all the required facilities to make the city adequate for the growth of any and all international investments.

Besides the Aqaba Special Economic Zone, which was launched in February, the sea-port city is now paving the way for investors and businessmen to come along and employ their resources in the area. Such investments are expected to promote Jordanian trade relations with the US, Europe and the Far East among others. An IEC study revealed earlier in the year that the new Aqaba Industrial Estate could receive $100 million in investments within the coming decade. These investments are expected to provide jobs for more than 7000 Jordanians. Transportation from and to the new estate will be facilitated through a two-way highway linked with the Dead Sea Road. Al Majali said that Jordan's private sector is invited to take part in the new project. "The private sector has the opportunity to administer and operate the new project and make their businesses in the area more profitable in the future," he pointed out.
