Ammon News - Princess Dana Firas, president of the Association of the World Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS Jordan), stressed the importance of linking cultural heritage to sustainable development goals and creating a reciprocal relationship in this regard.

Speaking at her visit on Tuesday, to the Vocational and Technical Skills Development Commission (VTSDC), in the presence of Minister of Labor, Nayef Estiteh, Princess Dana said preserving Jordan's cultural heritage and training young people on antiquities and heritage programs contribute to achieving sustainable development and providing "true" job opportunities for young people.

Estiteh stressed the importance of these joint programs to create youth job opportunities by developing tourism projects to preserve Jordan's antiquities and heritage, which are "an important source for Jordan's revenues."

The minister also pointed to the importance of joint cooperation with all partners to find solutions aimed to reduce Jordan's unemployment rates.

For her part, VTSDC head, Raghda Fauri, said the commission seeks to implement Royal visions by paying attention to vocational and technical education (VTE) sector.

VTSDC is working to develop training activities to guide youth join VTE programs, Fauri noted, adding that its role focuses on regulating VTE and training sectors in Jordan.

VTSDC, she noted, works in partnership with Jordan's sectorial skills councils to set the "true" labor market requirements with the highest degree of accuracy and objectivity.

The VTSDC also seeks to identify the market's needs for training programs necessary for each career, especially in the professional and technical fields, as the private sector is "more experienced" in this regard, she pointed out.
