Greater investment of both time and money into Jordan’s local, regional and international transport networks is expected, with King Abdullah II bin Al Hussein underscoring the importance of building and maintaining effective transit systems. Major public transport projects are currently under way, along with continued expansion of land and sea links. In policy and regulation, new laws are expected to bring some much-needed reform. Meanwhile, the country’s strategic position on historical trade routes continues to give it a great comparative advantage for international transport and logistics outfits. Jordan’s location as a natural conduit for trade with Iraq and – in the future – Syria, place it in good stead to contribute to any major reconstruction efforts in the region. This chapter contains an interview with Kjeld Binger, CEO, Airport International Group.
