Jordan Defense Industry
Jordan is a recent entrant to the domestic defense industry with the establishment of King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau in 1999. The defense industrial initiative is intended to jumpstart industrialization across a range of sectors. With the Jordanian defense expenditures at 8.7% of GDP, the Jordanian authorities created the defense industry to utilize defense budget spending power and to assist in economic growth without placing additional demands on the national budget. Jordan also hosted SOFEX 2008, an international military exhibition. Jordan is a regional and international provider of advanced military goods and services.
A KADDB Industrial Park was opened in September 2009 in Mafraq. Its is an integral industrial free zone specialised in defence industries and vehicles and machinery manufacturing. It is expected that by 2015, the park is expected to provide around 15,000 job opportunities whereas the investment volume is expected to reach JD500 million.
The KADDB Industrial Park, a limited-liability company, was established in accordance with the Free Zones Law to strengthen the industrial base of Jordan, attract investments and encourage the development of clusters in the defence and automotive industries by creating an investment-attractive environment that provides incentives, tax exemptions and state-of-the-art logistical services including communications, infrastructure and administration. It was created to provide a one-stop solution for the supply of defence and commercial equipment optimised to the requirements of the Middle East.
