The Jordan Restaurants Association (JRA) said the Central Bank of Jordan (CBJ) did not reject to deferring the due and unpaid installments of the pandemic-hit tourist restaurants to mid-2022, given the COVID-19-related "exceptional" circumstances.
The JRA's head, Issam Fakhreddin, called on tourist restaurants wishing to postpone their loan installments to submit a written request and a document of inability to repay, as the CBJ will examine the moratorium applications and take the necessary measures accordingly.
In a statement to "Petra" on Sunday, Fakhreddin lauded the CBJ's "continuous" cooperation and its "remarkable" efforts to help the tourism sector since the beginning of the pandemic until now.
He also commended the government's financial assistance packages, which had a "remarkable" impact in mitigating the the COVID-19 pandemic-conduced repercussions on Jordan's restaurant sector.
