Ammon News - Chief of the Royal Hashemite Court Yousef Issawi, head of the follow-up committee for the implementation of Royal Initiatives, on Saturday inaugurated development projects in the governorates of Zarqa and Mafraq.

In Zarqa, he opened a cardboard and toilet paper factory in Russeifa, part of a productivity programme under the Royal Initiatives that seeks to create jobs in areas with high youth unemployment, particularly among women.

Accompanied by Labour Minister Yousef Shamali, Issawi was briefed on the various stages of production at the facility, one of dozens of big company projects or branches that have been launched in 2008 in various areas where young men and women can go to the workplace after receiving training.

The factory kicked off in implementation of His Majesty King Abdullah's pledges that were made during his tours of various regions to carry out projects to improve the living conditions of citizens, offer quality services, upgrade infrastructure and enhance comprehensive economic and social development.

The Labour Minister said the Russeifa factory, the 31st manufacturing facility launched under the Productivity Branches Initiative, creates 250 job opportunities in its initial phase, that will be increased to 400 in the near future.

Naim Natour, a factory worker, said that before joining the facility, which offered him a job with a stable income, he took a two-month training course to acquire the necessary technical skills.

Issawi, in the attendance Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Mohammad Khalayleh, opened the public garden of Al-Arab Mosque, which was implemented in cooperation with the Zaha Cultural Centre, and includes a center for developing childhood skills, a five-a-side playground, a children’s play area and other facilities for the local people and children of all age groups "within a healthy and safe environment."

In June, 2018, His Majesty King Abdullah inaugurated the new four-storey mosque in the heart of Zarqa city, which can accommodate about 4,500 worshipers, and also houses a health centre with obstetrics and dental clinics as well as health facilities for persons with disabilities.

In Mafraq governorate, the Royal Court Chief handed over to an underprivileged family in Mughir Al-Sarhan the keys to their new home under the Royal initiative for the housing of poor families.
