Today, Jordan is a small but advanced nation with one of the most well-developed economies in the region. It is industrialised, with medicines and manufactured goods dominating exports, and the capital city, Amman, is an important finance centre both regionally and internationally.
The wealth gap in Jordan is considered to be high, with an employment structure that favours corporations and investors. Worker’s rights are extensive, but wages remain comparatively low compared to other highly-developed Arab nations. Business practice is often complex, especially for international organisations, so a payroll partner with expertise in Jordanian HR practices is a must.
