 Expatriates’ remittances went up at the end of July by 2.6 per cent to $2.16 billion, the Central Bank of Jordan (CBJ) said in a statement issued on Wednesday. Meanwhile, tourism revenues dropped by 8.4 per cent to around $1.88 million from $2.05 billion during the same period last year. The drop was attributed to a decline in the number of tourists seeking therapeutic services in the past few months and the drop of tourists in general in July, 2013.
