During a press conference held this morning, Prime Minister Omar Razzaz has announced the fourth economic stimulus package, which aims to improve the living conditions of citizens and the services provided to them.

At the beginning of his speech, Razzaz stressed that "the three government economic stimulus packages that were announced earlier will not be complete without launching various incentives in the education, health and public transportation sectors."

Razzaz added that the results and procedures of the first three packages started to bear fruit as land sales increased by 48%, apartments sales increased by 34%, transfers and exits increased by 66% compared to last year. In addition, the demand for automobiles has grown.

"We aim to not leave any Jordanian citizen without comprehensive health insurance, a child without going to kindergarten, a citizen without suitable modes of transport," Razzaz mentioned.

He pointed out that Jordan spends 8.12% of the public budget on the health sector, which is the highest average in the world.

He explained that the government's goal of disbursing the citizen's provident fund through social security is to raise the citizens' living conditions.
