Ammon News - The Amman Chamber of Industry (ACI), in cooperation with the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ), launched an employment program for the industrial sector, after training job seekers.

In a ACI press statement issued Saturday, the program comes within the framework of the Trade for Employment project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and the Dutch government, which falls under the axis of strengthening employment services in export companies.

Speaking during the launch ceremony, the ACI Chairman, Fathi Jaghbir, said the chamber welcomes cooperation with various institutions and agencies that have contributed to increasing the employment of Jordanians in the industrial sector after their training.

The industrial sector is the largest employer of Jordanian labor, as it employs more than a quarter of a million workers, of whom Jordanians constitute more than 90 percent, he said.

For his part, ACI Director General, Nael Husami, said the program aims to help the export industrial companies to provide qualified and trained workers to meet various technical, administrative, engineering needs, by building the job seekers' capabilities on basic operating skills and occupational health and safety measures.

In this context, Husami noted an e-campaign was launched to network employers with job seekers via an online platform run by trained team to ensure sustained services and continuously improve their quality.

Director of GIZ Component Manager, Lara Abu Salim, said the program aims to provide job networking services, capacity building and basic employment skills to about 500 job seekers in the Jordanian industrial sector (at least 20 percent of Syrians, and 15% women).

The GIZ official noted a set of support services will be implemented aimed to stimulate the sustainability of employment process and reduce its costs in export facilities and help meet occupational health and safety standards in the workplace to reduce the risk of the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic and to develop work procedures for factory-related occupational health and safety.
