AMMONNEWS - Jordan and the United States signed on Tuesday an economic assistance deal worth 329 million US dollars, Jordan's Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation said.

Jordanian Minister of Planning and International Cooperation Mary Kawar signed the agreement with US officials, according a statement from the ministry.

Kawar said the deal, part of a US aid package to Jordan, will enhance the kingdom's economic development and ensure its economic stability.

Under the deal, several projects in the fields of health, education, water, women support and youth will be implemented.

The US pledged in 2018 to provide 1 billion dollars in economic aid to Jordan, with an aim to promote trade, investment and increase the competitiveness of Jordan's private sector.
