Jun 04,2023 - Last updated at Jun 04,2023

The royal wedding filled the hearts of the Jordanian people with joy and happiness throughout the past beautiful days. The significant international attendance at this esteemed ceremony exemplified the immense appreciation and respect for the Hashemite family, leadership and the nation of Jordan. This global message carries future significance for Jordan's political and economic stability, serving as a valuable asset that requires nurturing, strengthening and preservation.

On this joyous occasion, we extend our deepest love and congratulations to His Majesty King Abdullah and Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah. We wish to express our warmest wishes to the newlyweds, His Royal Highness Prince Hussein, Crown Prince, and Her Royal Highness Princess Rajwa Al Hussein. May their union be filled with love, happiness and eternal teamwork.

Undoubtedly, political and economic stability in Jordan is essential for creating an enabling environment that promotes economic growth, attracts investments, reduces poverty and ensures the well-being of its people. These factors enable Jordan to overcome challenges, seize opportunities, and achieve long-term sustainable development.

Furthermore, political, security, economic and financial stability are vital for Jordan and its devoted citizens. To attract investments, maintain economic growth, and secure a sustainable future, it is crucial to implement prudent economic, investment, and financial policies. Additionally, reducing the budget deficit and effectively managing public debt are essential for maintaining financial stability. Building investor confidence requires the development of a favorable business environment, including transparent regulations, streamlined bureaucracy, and protection of property rights, to attract both domestic and foreign investments.

Accelerating economic diversification and reducing dependency on specific sectors is imperative. Encouraging diversification, innovation, and entrepreneurship can enhance economic resilience and reduce vulnerability to external shocks.

A stable economy is pivotal in achieving sustainable development and improving the quality of life for Jordanian citizens. This necessitates increased investment in human capital by prioritising education, vocational training and skills development. These efforts will create a qualified workforce capable of driving economic growth and innovation.

Additionally, strengthening the role of the private sector is crucial. This can be achieved by creating a more favourable investment environment, reducing bureaucratic obstacles, and providing incentives for entrepreneurship and job creation.

It is essential to focus on strengthening regional economic cooperation, trade agreements, and investment partnerships to capitalise on regional markets and expand export opportunities.

Increasing youth participation in civil activities through engagement in civil society organisations and community initiatives, particularly those offered by the Crown Prince Foundation, contributes to national development. Encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship and fostering an environment that supports startups, provides access to financing, and promotes innovation in sectors such as technology, renewable energy, and the creative industries are all part of this effort.

The development of strategic industries is also crucial. Identifying and investing in sectors with high growth potential, such as information technology, pharmaceuticals, tourism and agriculture, will stimulate job creation and boost exports.

Finally, close collaboration between the government, private sector, civil society organisations, and educational institutions is vital for effectively implementing strategies and plans. Monitoring, evaluating, and continuously adapting policies and programs are critical to ensuring their success and promoting sustainable economic growth in Jordan.

Once again, we extend our heartfelt congratulations to Their Royal Highnesses, the newlyweds.
