17 Jan 12. Research and Markets(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ae720f/jordan_defence_and) announced the addition of the “Jordan Defence and Security Report 2012” report to their offering. In 2011 BMI estimates that defence spending fell by 1.12% in Jordanian dinar terms, to JOD1.01bn. This fall is viewed as temporary, however, and in fact only represents a fall to 5.46% of GDP being spent on defence – still a very significant figure comparatively to global terms. BMI sees a growth of around 8.3% in defence spending through 2012, which will increase to 10% in 2015, before dropping slightly to 8.7% in 2016. Constant US$ change, however, is more relaxed, with a return to growth in 2012 of 3.8% following a 6.3% contraction in 2011. This budget is subsidised heavily by much of the rest of the world, with transfers often being labelled as gifts or being recognised as part of a package of aid. In particular, the GCC (particularly Saudi Arabia), as well as the US, have given large grants to the Hashemite kingdom in 2011, and this has had a noticeable effect on the finances of the state.
