Transport

Jordan Transport 2012
The transport sector accounts for around 12% of GDP and 10% of the country’s workforce, according to figures cited by the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation in January 2012. The sector has traditionally been dominated by road infrastructure, with Aqaba’s seaport and air transport also playing an important role. The rail system is less developed, though the government is moving ahead with plans to expand and modernise rail networks. In aviation, extensive improvement plans are under way at two of the major airports. Furthermore, measures are now being taken to update Jordan’s transport legislation. This chapter includes an interview with Ibrahim Naouri, Chairman of the Naouri Group; and Kjeld Binger, CEO of the Airport International Group.
