AMMAN —  Jordanian Free Zones Corporation Chairman Nasser Shraideh expects the free zone at the Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) to attract JD380 million of new investments and increase exports by JD750 million during the first three years, according to an Amman Chamber of Commerce (ACC) statement said Sunday.

Shraideh made his remarks during a meeting with ACC President Issa Murad, attended by several heads of Jordanian commercial chambers and representatives of commercial sectors.

Shraideh said the zone will provide 3,500 direct job opportunities and 4,000 indirect ones that will stimulate the national economy as the zone will also help meet local market demands through entering regional markets and being a logistic area for exporting and importing. Murad said the launch of the free zone in QAIA comes in response to Royal directives to support national investments.
