Abstract

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, more commonly known as Jordan, resides on the East Bank of the River Jordan. It is one of the more stable nations in the Middle East and is experiencing a general trend of economic growth despite the Arab Spring, a whirlwind of uprisings taking place in Arab countries in Jordan’s general vicinity. This study takes a closer look at Jordan’s some of Jordan’s closest neighbors in order to analyze their relationships with Jordan, the effects of those relationships, and the resulting implications for firms considering investing in Jordan.
