< ALACRA META ABSTRACT>BMI View: We expect Jordan s defence budget to continue increasing both in absolute terms and as a share of GDP over the next five years. This will be driven primarily by the country s need to increase its armed forces capabilities, in order to be able to efficiently contribute to the US-led international coalition s efforts against IS. ...This is the result, primarily, of a defence strategy that has so far been essentially focused on the development of a small but very well trained and equipped army. Whilst some of the equipment has been provided through the domestic defence sector, most have been imported from the country s main defence trade partner - the US. Historically considered a haven of peace in the middle of a conflict-prone zone (Jordan shares borders with Israel, Syria and Iraq), Jordan has been an important ally for the US foreign policy in the region in these past decades. As such, the US has significantly contributed to the development of the well-equipped army through financial support, as well as through selling and donating capacities such as aircraft. ...Secondly, with the mass influx of refugees, the risk of terrorist sleeper cells at the borders has increased the likelihood that terrorists may cross the border and establish themselves in Jordan. Given such circumstances, Jordan has been significantly stepping up its participation in the US-led coalition s bombing of Syria, in the hope of keeping at bay, initially, and neutralising in the longer term, the
