“The quality of life of the individual citizen is the ultimate yardstick by which to measure the success of any government. Jordan’s development record, though impressive by many standards, was always hampered not only by the ongoing conflict, but also by the scarcity of resources. Our answer was to invest in our most precious asset, the individual citizen.”
