welcome message of the ambassador

Ambassador Dr. Alia Hatoug Bouran

We welcome you to the website of the Embassy of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in Washington, DC. We hope to provide you with an overview of Jordan's vision, its endeavors in the United States and its partaking in the international arena.

As Their Majesties King Abdullah II and Queen Rania believe, Jordan's message is about a promising future for all generations, especially the youth and those who are "pro-change, pro-reform, and pro-technology". In the words of King Abdullah, "the future holds the promise and the promise is the future." Our mission here in Washington is to get this message of hope and of the future to all Americans and all our visitors from different parts of the world.

We hope this website offers you a window of opportunity to know Jordan and visit its treasures and learn more about its history, politics and culture. We also wish to inform you of Jordan's activities and its political and economic relations with the United States. Through cooperation, dialogue, and the exchange of ideas, Jordan and the United States have maintained a solid friendship based on tolerance and understanding. Today, Jordan's partnership with United States particularly the Free Trade Agreement, is part of the global trend that opens our borders to each other in the pursuit of economic and social advancement as well as comfort and stability for each and every individual. In the Middle East, Jordan marches the path of reform and change to achieve a lasting peace through which our country will thrive and our people will prosper.

We hope you benefit from our website and we welcome all your comments and questions.

Dr. Alia Hatoug Bouran
