using (ARIMA), models based on data covering the period (1981-2010), it was found that the time series for the
variable (FDI) was not stationary in its levels during the time, and it suffers from a unit root, we have been
working to make it stationary after identifying first order of difference which was used in (ARIMA) models .in
this research ,We used the computer program (Minitab, 14 and Eviews, 3.1) for data analysis and forecasting.
The study reached a set of results and found out that the expected total volume of (FDI) inflows will reached
(29207.06) million Jordanian dinar (JD) by the year 2030, while the average (FDI) is equal to (1479.096) million
