GDP in Jordan
Jordan - GDPThe Syrian civil war and regional instability continued to weigh on Jordan’s economy in the third quarter of 2016, causing the economy to slow further. Moreover, in Q3 the unemployment rate continued to grow as conditions in the labor market worsened, due to the large number of refugees seeking jobs. The latest available data show that in the January to November period exports fell at an almost double-digit rate, and industrial production also dropped, albeit at a softer pace than exports. On the upside, in the last quarter of the year consumer confidence gained some strength.
