    main rice crop this year. According to preliminary analysis

    time to start a business) with industry-level entry rates of
    limited liability firms, it explores the effects of
    regulatory barriers on the average of the annual entry rates

    supported by improved terms of trade, higher remittance
    inflows and export demand driven by the on-going recovery of

    Group (WBG), and the international community are working
    towards a paradigm shift in their collective response to the
    refugee crisis - a holistic approach which stresses the
    continuum between the humanitarian response and the
    country’s development agenda. In parallel, Jordan’s implicit
    social contract by which the state provided citizens with
    jobs and heavily subsidized public services is evolving.
