Jordan and Integrated Maritime Policy

General presentation: Maritime facts

Jordan is almost entirely land‐locked and only has a small (27 km) marine coast to the Red Sea, centred on the town and port of Aqaba, and bordering Israel and Saudi Arabia (with Egypt a closely opposite country in the Gulf of Aqaba). There is no Mediterranean coast. Consequently, many maritime priorities are quite localised, and relate to development of the Aqaba region (e.g. through activities such as tourism, diving and protection of coral reefs), although the region is important economically for the whole country and many aspects of the maritime sector have national and regional implications.
