The successes of other nations can provide potential guidance for decision-making in Jordan. JNCT annually covers some international reports that focus on comparing countries in terms of economic development. Using a certain list of indicators, it gives a good and comparable reference to the situation in Jordan, both in terms of possible further reforms and systemic changes, but also of the position of the countries in global rankings.

The results of the following studies are presented:

WEF'S Reports IMD's Reports WB's Doing Business Reports
World Economic Forum Reports


For the past three decades, the World Economic Forum’s annual competitiveness reports have examined the many factors enabling national economies to achieve sustained economic growth and long-term prosperity. The report aims over the years has been to provide benchmarking tools for business leaders and policymakers to identify obstacles to improved competitiveness, thus stimulating discussion on strategies to overcome them. In the current challenging economic environment, the report serves as a critical reminder of the importance of taking into account the consequences of our present actions on future prosperity.


WEF define competitiveness as the set of institutions, policies, and factors that determine the level of productivity of a country. The level of productivity, in turn, sets the sustainable level of prosperity that can be earned by an economy. In other words, more-competitive economies tend to be able to produce higher levels of income for their citizens. The productivity level also determines the rates of return obtained by investments in an economy. Because the rates of return are the fundamental drivers of the growth rates of the economy, a more-competitive economy is one that is likely to grow faster in the medium to long run.
