Prime Minister Bisher Khasawneh Saturday chaired a meeting of the Investment Council at the Prime Ministry, during which he called for unifying investment references, activating the investment window and providing it with commissioners from concerned authorities with full powers to speed up transactions.
Khasawneh also spoke about the need for a clear investment strategy to take down bureaucratic barriers, which are still the biggest hurdle to investment, pledging to take all necessary measures to enhance existing local and foreign investments and attract more capital.
He said the current government strongly believes that investment is a central issue and an essential entry point to solve key pressing problems, including unemployment and the challenges posed to the economy in general.
He stressed that the private sector is a key partner in the development and investment process, adding that the government is keen to create the appropriate environment for the private sector with all its components to function and grow and contribute to the national development process.
