The program comes within the framework of strengthening cooperation in the cultural, scientific, and technical fields, and includes exchanging visits between faculty members and staff at universities and institutes in both countries, in addition to offering scholarships.

Another executive program (2021–2026) between Jordan and Armenia on cooperation in the field of education and science was approved.

Under the program, the two countries will establish and develop direct links between universities and scientific and research organizations in the two countries, in addition to offering scholarships for bachelors and masters degrees in many disciplines.

In today’s meeting, the Cabinet also approved the plan to issue 2022 stamps, which will feature nine themes related to wildflowers in Jordan, the Royal Tank Museum, adventure tourism in Jordan, the Queen Alia International Airport, “Salt; the city of tolerance and urban hospitality,” Thamudic inscriptions in Jordan, the Dead Sea, migratory birds, and cultural diversity in Jordan.
