AMMAN — The Jordan Engineers Association (JEA) is looking to build a tourist resort in Ajloun’s hilly area of Ras Munif. 

JEA President Majed Tabbaa told The Jordan Times Sunday that a team of consultants and engineering experts will prepare a feasibility study and architecture blueprints for a resort project in Ras Munif, which is the highest point in the governorate of Ajloun, some 70km northwest of Amman. 

The proposed project would be implemented through the syndicate’s investment fund, Tabbaa said, adding that the size of the land allocated for the project is 109 dunums. 

On Sunday, the JEA, the Jordan Industrial Estates Corporation and the Social Security Investment Fund signed a cooperation agreement to develop the tourist project in Ajloun. 

Tabbaa said the agreement entails allocating the land for investment, adding that the syndicate can implement the project alone or can invite other investors to join as partners. 

On the details of the proposed scheme, he said it would include hotels, restaurants, parks and recreational and entertainment facilities, indicating that the value of the project would be identified once feasibility studies are ready. 

“Ras Munif is a very beautiful part of Ajloun, with green landscapes overlooking surrounding areas. It is very attractive for investors and tourists,” the JEA president said. 


“If the project is implemented, it will be very important for the tourism sector in Jordan and specifically for Ajloun. It would also create a large number of job opportunities,” he added.
