  2. Macroeconomic & Corporate News World Bank forecast for Jordan’s GDP growth ‘realistic’ — pundits A day after the World Bank forecast that Jordan’s economy is expected to increase by 2.4 per cent in 2018, economists on Wednesday said that such a “low” prediction is “realistic” as there will be no breakthroughs ushering in better economic performance this year.The World Bank report, e-mailed to The Jordan Times, indicated that Jordan’s gross domestic product is expected to increase by 2.5 per cent in 2019 from 2.1 per cent in 2017 The report said that improvements seen in tourism, mining and quarrying are expected to have driven a timid improvement in growth in 2017. However, the economy remains burdened with ongoing uncertainty in Syria, slow revival of economic cooperation with Iraq and an economic slowdown in the Gulf Cooperation Council. In addition, the economy is subject to a slow pace of structural reforms that is impeding a strong recovery in growth, the report indicated.
