    the main risks that affect FDI inflows to Jordan. Second: exploring the main components

    of each factor (economical, political, and cultural) that contributed most to FDI decision

    making in Jordan.

    Using a Conditional Logit model, it is found that despite the political factors to have

    most significant influence on FDI decision to Jordan, there is a significant hidden role of

    considered as a result of hidden cultural factors. Such conclusion, the importance of
