Jordan PM says more incentives to boost economy as cabinet reshuffled

Jordan’s Prime Minister Omar Razzaz said Thursday that the cabinet reshuffle came ahead of a series of incentives to be announced soon amidst the comprehensive reform process, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

The prime minister said the government will announce additional incentive bundles that will have a direct impact on citizens and targeted sectors.

He said the focus in the coming stage will be on employment, which is a burden to all families across the country.

Early Thursday, King Abdullah II of Jordan approved a reshuffle in the government of Razzaz. The new ministers were sworn in before the king.
