Prime Minister Hani Mulki said that the current economic reforms Jordan is seeing are part of a national program exempt from any external international influence, stressing that the International Monetary Fund only plays a counseling role in Jordanian politics.

The PM seemed optimistic about Jordan’s economic future, placing faith in the Kingdom’s leadership and the people’s awareness and consciousness of the situation.

Mulki said that Jordan aims to achieve self-sufficiency, and to “benefit the citizen, not the commodity.”

This came in a meeting Mulki held in the Hussein Cultural Center with governorate mayors from around the Kingdom, the Ministers of Municipal, Parliamentary and Media Affairs.

The meeting is part of a scheduled series of other meetings the Government launched yesterday to discuss and to receive and analyze feedback received to find solutions to economic challenges and to cultivate development, in order to achieve better quality of life for Jordanians.
