King meets heads of multinational firms in the U.S.
Washington/ March 22/ (Petra)-- His Majesty King
Abdullah II said the economic reform plans Jordan carried over the
past few years have contributed to a positive growth rate reaching
7.5 of GDP during 2004.
During a meeting with board chairmen of multinational
firms operating in the United States, King Abdullah said Jordan has
moved towards openness to major economic blocs and concluded several
vital agreements particularly with the U.S. and the EU. It has also
expanded its qualified industrial zones.
There were big opportunities for foreign investors to join
in infrastructure projects made available by the privatization
program and to benefit the U.S.-oriented industrial exports under
the free trade agreement between Jordan and the United States, King
Abdullah said.
Jordan's strategic location has qualified it to serve as a
gateway to the Middle East region particularly to the neighboring
markets which adds more opportunities to investment companies,
the King added.
King Abdullah noted the reform plans being carried out
in educational, legislative, judicial and administrative sectors
together with public sector restructuring process aimed to increase
productivity depending on knowledge-based economy.
Several countries in the region have copied Jordan's
model of investment in education, King Abdullah said noting that
schools and universities in Jordan have been connected with a highly
developed information network within a true partnership between the
public and the private sectors with the aim of developing human
resources.
King Abdullah called heads of companies to attend the World
Economic Forum due to be held at the Dead Sea resort next May.
Addressing the gathering of economic and business leaders was
Industry and Trade Minister Ahmed Hindawi, who outlined major
incentives that, together with the investment-supporting factors,
have created the most favorable investment climate in the Kingdom.
High among investment privileges in the kingdom are the
updated legislation, economic stability, qualified human resources,
privatization programs, a developed banking system, freedom of
ownership for foreign investors and protection of intellectual
property rights, Hindawi said.
Jordan's total exports during 2004 rose by 28.2 percent
making $4 billion over quarter of which, $1.1 billion going to the
U.S. market under the free trade agreement between the two
countries, he added.
He said such positive economic indicators helped increase
economic growth rate, expected to amount to 8 percent of GDP by
the end of this year. Inflation rate went down to 2 percent last
year, he added.
He said the IT sector is a promising one in Jordan. This
sector, which relies on highly qualified Jordanian cadres and a
highly developed telecommunication network, is a government
priorities with the aim of operating the e-government
and establishing an advanced environment of business and
education, Hindawi said.
According the World Competitiveness 2003-2004 report,
Jordan IT sector ranked 11 amongst 102 countries surveyed by
the report, Hindawi said.
Finance Minister Mohammad Abu Hammur outlined sectors
being privatized to encourage partnership between the public
and the private sector in vital and strategic projects.

King's address at Arab Summit in Algiers...1st LD
The King, who reiterated Jordan's readiness to offer all
forms of support to Palestinian brothers, underlined the necessity
for an inclusive settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict on the
basis of the UN relevant resolutions, Madrid terms of reference, and
the Arab peace initiative, which should be represented to the world
in its true image as it has been wanted by Saudi Crown Prince
Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz.
Based on this the Syrian and Lebanese peace tracks should be
revived to go in parallel line with the Palestinian track, the
King added.
On the Iraqi issue, King Abdullah welcomed elections
held in this country as a major step necessary for the political
process to go ahead.
The large scale public participation in the elections was a
positive evidence on the Iraqis' willingness and readiness to
rebuild their country and determine their future, said the King who
affirmed Jordan's respect of Iraq's sovereignty, independence and
unity.
The formation of a legitimate Iraqi government with
grassroots bases inclusive of all Iraqi sects is the guarantee to
continue the democratic process and preserve the rights of
minorities, said the King urging the world community to
offer every possible assistance to Iraq rebuilding
programs.

Referring to world campaign in fighting terror, King Abdullah
reaffirmed Jordan's condemnation to all form of terrorism and
violence.
" We condemn all forms of violence and terrorism facing our
innocent people in Hillah or any other area in Iraq or else where
in the world," King Abdullah said.
"Terrorism is world phenomena that is not connected with
any specific culture or religion rather than the other and any
attempt to associate Islam with terror is rejected," the King
added noting that the best response to such attempt s was the
issuance of "Amman Message", which presents Islam on its true
and bright image based on values of tolerance and dialogue and the
rejection of all forms of violence and terrorism.

On reform in the Middle East, King Abdullah said the need
for reform and modernization has become a demand that can not be
delayed or postponed.
" If some people see that reform is an agenda dictated
from outside, then its our duty towards our peoples to take the lead
and start the process of reform and modernization being a request
that fulfills aspirations of our peoples for progress," King
Abdullah said.
He added Jordan has already embarked on a national plan of
reform and comprehensive development that includes political,
economic, social and administrative spheres.
In compliance with this move we have drawn up a plan
designed to enhance public participation in the process of decision
making through dividing the Kingdom into a number of
development regions, each run by a directly elected council. We have
also formed a specialized team to draw up a national agenda
inclusive of all fields of development and modernization for the
coming ten years.

Ah, so he sent the PM in his place, it seems strange to me that he wouldn't attend despite knowing about it since last year--but I think you may be right, Monalisa, as you said "Actually the real reason which made him not to attend this summit is the tautness with some arab leaders and king abbdallh about the iraqi and the palestinian issues"

-Eliza

PS: thanks for the input and for correcting me, I just assumed that since Petra said it was the King's address that he was there--why would they call it the King's address if the PM was the one who actually addressed the summit?

He's boycotting because the other Arab leaders quickly and overwhelming rejected his peace plan. :( (for his pouting, not for the rejection)

Excerpt from the International Herald Tribune, March 22, 2005:

Jordan’s King Abdullah II shook up the preparations for the summit with his peace initiative — and now that it was rejected, he is not attending. Jordan had argued that if Arab nations go ahead with normalization, it would prompt Israel to make major peace concessions.
