Jordanian pharmaceuticals earned $170 million from exports in 2000. These went primarily to Arab markets in the Gulf, Yemen and Iraq.

* Jordanian pharmaceuticals earned $170 million from exports in 2000. These went primarily to Arab markets in the Gulf, Yemen and Iraq. Sources at the Jordan Association for Pharmaceutical Industries (JAPI) said new markets in the Middle East, East Asia and Europe will be approached soon. Pharmaceutical industries in Jordan have attracted more than $450 million in investment thus far. JAPI sources noted that local medicine exports would have to upgrade quality and efficiency due to mounting competition in world markets.

* Bounced checks presented in Jordan were 6.4 percent of the 4.4 million checks circulated in the first half of 2001. These returned checks were estimated to be worth JD 266.4 million. The total value of all check present this year is JD 6 billion. In June, bounced checks comprised JD 40 million of the JD 941.4 million presented in the Kingdom.

* Jordan lost investments worth JD 17 million this year due to bureaucratic red tape. These investments were allocated for new industry estates in the Jordan Valley, north of the Dead Sea. Bureaucracy also delayed the opening of an 83-dunum estate, supposed to take place in June. Sources at Diamond Investments Co said the lost investments would have provided more than 1000 jobs for the inhabitants in the area. n Excavations began in July at the eastern shore of the Dead Sea to explore for oil in the area. The US-based Trans Global Petroleum/Jordan dug a five kilometer deep well. The well is the first of its kind in seven years. The second part of the excavation begins February 2002. Geological and geophysical surveys were made on the area before excavation. The US company signed an agreement with Jordan's Natural Resources Authority in 1996 to explore for oil in Jordan. n The government is about to exempt investors in the Qualified Industrial Zones from paying the present non-refundable bank insurance. The decision will also incorporate sales tax exemptions for these investor's purchases. nHousing Bank for Trade and Investment (HBTF) earned JD 15 million in profit in the first half of 2001. The bank achieved 44 percent in net revenues. Approximately JD 7 million of this came from the conclusion of the sale of the Housing Bank Commercial Complex. The sale of the complex, worth JD 14 million, went to a French company. HBTF is Jordan's largest bank, with a shareholder value worth JD 236 million.
