The Kingdom's total public debt reached JD26.120 billion by the end of February, or 94.3 per cent of the gross domestic product (GDP) for 2017 compared to 95.1 percent of the GDP in 2016, Finance Ministry figures showed.

The government-guaranteed debts of the state-run National Electric Power Company (NEPCO) and the Water Authority of Jordan (WAJ) stood alone at some JD7.6 billion.

The net domestic debt, including that of financially independent government agencies, at the end of February stood at JD14.90 billion, which equals 50.8 per cent of GDP as estimated for 2017, compared with JD13.457 in 2016.
