Abstract: During the reign of the King Hussein from 1952 to 1999, Jordan's economic policy was characterized by government-led development policies, contrary to the recent market-oriented policies under the King Abdullah II. Six development plans were instituted from the 1960s to the 1990s, and the Jordanian economy maintained stable development accompanied by the expansion of its foreign trade. Foreign trade is vital to compensate for the insufficient scale of the domestic market and to supply the necessary daily goods and materials for production in small countries, and Jordan is no exception. Based on this relationship between trade and economic development, this paper describes the transformation of Jordan's trade focusing on how the trade route and imports and exports were affected by infrastructure building and the fostering of industries as the significant purposes of the development plans. Through the discussions on their historical development with analysis of the statistical data and details of the plans, perspectives on the governmental role for national development and the causality of the constantly unfavorable balance of trade are shown.
