During a follow up meeting at Al Husseiniya Palace on the implementation of Aqaba development plans, attended by HRH Crown Prince Hussein, the King directed the government to enhance the tourism, transport, and energy sectors in the Aqaba Special Economic Zone, according to a Royal Court statement.
