It’s time to give back to the people of Japan!

Perhaps this loan will bring other things that will be beneficial to Japan, its just we dont have enough information to make any emotional or solid conclusion yet.

Are Japanese companies involved in the construction work and the like? So the money will flow back to Japan? Pay for Japanese workers? We have to much debt here.

The headline states that the loan is for electricity reform, but does not go into detail. I would like to know more. The article also states that Jordan is going to build a desalination plant. That makes sense, especially in the Middle East. Israel now gets over half of all their water from desalination, and they pay less per gallon than we here in Southern California pay to have water shipped from Central California.

The self serving politicians don’t seem to think so though

Don’t you think that the taxes on food should be abolished?

The government gives out loans and donations here and there every month yet the increasingly poorer Japanese pay for it

Something isn’t right!

But hey, no money left at home to subsidize gas costs anymore, right?

Exactly as @kurisupisu states. How much are the interest payments? The article mentions Japan providing loans but also calls them "donors". So it's an interest free loaning of OUR money with no expectation of it ever being paid back?

Theres no free thing in this world, dont worry. Theres probably some nice dealings behind this.

Well done, Jordan can be of a great asset to Japan. Jordan is the only stable nation in the middle east and in need of help, Jordan and Lebanon are the only two nations in the area that always open their borders to all refugees in times of crises. Thank you japan.
