Jordan tourism sectorIn order to bankroll the launch of a heritage village project which will showcase traditional products, Jordan’s Council of Ministers has approved a JD6 million loan to the Petra Region Authority from the Cities and Villages Development Bank.

The government has recently taken a series of steps to boost the world tourist destination of Petra and the Kingdom’s tourism sector, which had witnessed a slump in the past years due to the regional turmoil.

Authorities had cut the hotel electricity tariff, abolished visas for tourists of all nationalities arriving via Jordanian tours agents, gave Arab tourists equal treatment to Jordanians when entering tourist sites and revoked other visa fees and reduced the fees for arrivals via land crossings from 40 dinars to 10, in addition to other exemptions.

During the meeting, chaired by Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour, the ministers also discussed other items on the agenda including the national health strategy, and also endorsed protocols to increase the trade volume with Tunisia.
