Welcome to IPI World Congress 2013!
The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is ranked as one of the freest economies in the Middle East and North Africa. The capital, Amman, is the country's political, cultural and commercial centre, and among the most popular locations for multinational corporations to set up their regional offices, alongside Doha and Dubai.
