Despite the ongoing political unrest roiling the Middle East, Jordan is a safe destination for investment, insists King Abdullah II of Jordan.
"We have a history over many decades of Jordan always being stable throughout the region, whatever the crises are," Abdullah said in an interview with CNBC.
"We've always said that wherever there have been problems in the region, Jordan doesn't use that as an excuse not to move forward. Whether it's economic reform or political reform, I keep telling our people that it's business as usual and we shouldn't shy away," he added.
Jordan's economy expanded 3.1 percent in 2014, up from 2.8 percent in the previous year, helped by lower energy prices and looser monetary policy.
"We are expecting 4 percent over the next two or three years. Our reserves in the central bank are the highest they have ever been," he added.
