AMMAN — Government officials on Saturday reviewed the progress of projects financed by the Gulf Cooperation Council grant extended to Jordan.

At a periodic meeting held at the Planning Ministry, Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour said this year will see an increase in capital expenditure.

Allocations for development projects will reach JD803 million, he said, urging all ministries and public institutions to ensure that all contracted projects within the grant are run as planned to achieve development goals.

Ensour expressed Jordan’s appreciation of the Gulf countries’ support.

In 2011, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the UAE and Kuwait pledged $5 billion in assistance to Jordan over a period of five years.
