The celebration of the Arab Revolt which happened in 1916 also starts from days before Jordan’s Independence Day. When The Sharif Hussein bin Ali began the Great Arab Revolt where Arab rule was secured in Syria and Jordan, among others in the Arab peninsula.
Jordan Independence Day is a significant public holiday in Jordan.
Jordan Independence Day is observed on May 25 every year in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, commemorating the date in 1946 when the country achieved independence from Britain. And the full and formal independence was attained.
King Abdullah I, the founder, initiated an arduous battle together with the Jordanian citizens to unwaveringly mark this noteworthy day in the heritage of the country.
When Jordanians observe this cherished countrywide event, they remember about the battle of their previous generations for an extensive period, under the direction of the Hashemite Kings to attain freedom, develop the country, and substantiate liberty for the people and the country.
A journey of a fruitful 70 years has seen them climb up to be a middle-income country, as well as be known as a country of “high human development” by the 2015 human development report.
All of the Jordan is in a festive mood for its 70th birthday and for the celebration of the Great Arab Revolt. These two celebrations are going to be in Jordan quite a spectacle to see as a wave of enthusiastic countrymen and patriots will join in to celebrate the inception of their beloved country. In Romania we are celebrating it tonight together, and tomorrow in the Herastrau Parc to enjoy the Romanian public with a live music performed by a special group of the Jordanian Gendarmerie , who are with us tonight and who came only for the event.
This year, however, Jordan will be celebrating as they are hosting about 1,400,000 Syrian refugees and the economy is being substantially burdened by it. However, this will not deter the countrymen and officials as they believe that helping their brethren is certainly the right thing to do.
At present, Jordanians see their future under the guidance of His Majesty King Abdullah II as thriving and bright. They take pride of the respectable history of their country, and its significant feats of the present time, and are looking forward to a future that encourages integrity, equality, affluence, and steadiness, one that bolsters equal opportunities and safety.

And already some members of the Government of His Excellency Mr Dacian Ciolos visited Jordan, and many delegations in both directions contributed to the exiting excellent relations.
