AMMAN — The Jordan Strategy Forum (JSF) on Tuesday called for increasing tax flexibility through expanding the tax base, boosting collection efficiency and diversifying tax resources.

In a study titled “The trio of economic growth, tax revenues and foreign aid”, JSF called on the government to achieve higher levels of stability in the macro economy performance, especially that a former JSF study showed instability in the economy that affected tax flexibility.

The forum also recommended adopting a “very careful” administration of foreign assistance and using it for enhancing economic growth and capital expenditures, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
