The Labour Ministry of Jordan has announced that more than 500 unemployed Jordanians would soon find jobs in the garment sector after they are trained on the required skills.
 
According to an agreement signed by the Ministry, the King Abdullah Fund for Development, the Jordan Enterprise Development Corporation (JEDCO) and the Shahin Garment Factory would jointly set up factories in the southern Governorate of Karak and in Azraq to impart required skill training in apparel-making to 575 new workers.
 
Speaking on sidelines of the signing ceremony, Labour Minister Atef Odeibat said his Ministry has been executing a promotional strategy to explain the jobless people in the country, particularly in remote areas, regarding the significance of accepting available jobs.
 
Mr. Mustafa Asaad, Director General of the Shahin Garment Factory said tackling the unemployment issue is a common responsibility necessitating participation of all stakeholders in generation of job opportunities that can afford a decent living to the Jordanians.
 
As per the agreement, the Ministry, in association with Shahin Garment Factory, would organize awareness campaigns and field visits in the areas where the new factories are planned to be established.
 
The newly-recruited workers would undergo an 18 month training, for which the Ministry would pay them 50 percent of their monthly salaries, in addition to transportation and social security allowances, and a JD 35 allowance for daily meal per month.
 
Moreover, JEDCO would extend a JD 351,900 soft loan to the factory to help it cover 20 percent of the workers’ salaries for the entire training period of 18 months. However, the aid would be provided subject to the condition that the factory undertakes to employ no less than 500 workers at all times.
 
The Ministry of Labour would be responsible to monitor the execution of the agreement at all levels, and to see that the set goals are achieved.
