Jordan should continue with economic reforms

On Tuesday US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen encouraged Jordan’s King Abdullah to continue to implement economic reforms to boost sustainable growth and job creation, the Treasury said in a statement.

During a meeting with King Abdullah in Washington, Yellen noted the challenges that Jordan faces, complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic and “underscored the broad partnership between the United States and Jordan” including efforts to combat the financing of Middle East terrorism, the Treasury said.
