AMMAN — Amman Mayor Aqel Biltaji on Monday said the Greater Amman Municipality’s (GAM) assets stood at around JD2.5 billion.

In a lecture at the Orthodox Club, he noted that GAM has increased its capital spending to reach JD170 million, which will have a positive impact on the quality of services.

Biltaji underlined the municipality’s commitment to decreasing expenditures, expecting its austerity measures to realise JD4.6 million in surplus each year.

The mayor highlighted that the “random” expansion of Amman is placing huge pressure on its infrastructure, noting that around 3.5 million people reside in the city.
