  2. Macroeconomic & Corporate News Standard & Poor’s keeps Jordan’s credit rating unchanged Standard & Poor’s (S&P) has affirmed its B+/B credit rating to Jordan, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported on Saturday. S&P said that Jordan’s outlook remains stable, according to Reuters. The New York-based organisation expected Jordan’s debt position to broadly stabilise, supported by bilateral and multilateral grants and phased implementation of fiscal reforms. The agency also expected donors to continue to support Jordan amid the ongoing conflict in Syria and fiscal pressures resulting from refugee inflows. Nonetheless, S&P expected some decrease in donor support for Jordan, particularly budget support over the coming years, Reuters added. The rating was based on the government’s ability, according to the report, to maintain the debt rate in 2017 when compared to the rate registered in 2016, in addition to the adoption of fiscal reforms in 2018 within the General Budget Law, Petra reported. Finance Minister Omar Malhas stressed that the Kingdom’s efforts in attracting investments and assistance, including the aid agreement that was recently signed with the US, contributed to reaffirming Jordan’s rating as stable. This positive rating is attributed to several factors including the government’s ability to contain financial deficits and maintain a stable debt rate at 95.1 per cent, despite the low economic growth. Credit ratings may play a useful role in enabling corporations and governments to raise money in the capital markets. Instead of taking a loan from a bank, these entities sometimes borrow money directly from investors by issuing bonds or notes, according to S&P website. ‘26 ICT firms with JD33m capital register at JIC’ Twenty-six ICT companies registered at the Jordan Investment Commission (JIC) in the first two months of 2018, with a total investment volume of JD33 million, JIC announced on Saturday. The commission noted that the average time needed for the companies to register was “only” two working days, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported, citing a JIC statement. The ICT sector greatly contributes to the gross domestic product of the Kingdom which is home to more than 600 ICT firms that generated 16,793 jobs nationwide, according to JIC. * Source: Bloomberg, Jordan Times, Zawya Disclaimer Awraq Investments and its affiliates obtain information from sources they believe to be reliable, but do not warrant its accuracy or fitness for a particular purpose, and disclaim for themselves and their information providers all liability arising from the use.
