AMMAN — Royal Court Chief Yousef Issawi Saturday unveiled a new package of development projects in the Northern Badia, as part of Royal initiatives.

Issawi also inaugurated projects in Al-Ruweished District, according to local media outlets.

The projects entail building 100 houses for underprivileged families, establishing a garment factory that will create 200–400 job opportunities for the local community, and productive projects through cooperatives in the northern region.

Issawi, head of the committee tasked with following up on the implementation of the Royal initiatives, told a meeting with dignitaries and youth and women activists in the region that the new projects will be carried out according to a timeframe and in cooperation with the relevant government agencies and partners.

He said that the meetings with local communities came upon the directives of His Majesty, “who is aware of the challenges facing the people of the region, and who always underscores the need to reach out and listen to their demands and work to meet their needs”.

Issawi pointed out that under Royal directives, the Northern Badia will see development projects in various fields, with focus on agriculture, depending on the needs and priorities of each region.

Despite the challenges facing the economy, he said, improving the living conditions of citizens and services is a top priority of His Majesty, who constantly urges work to achieve that goal, protect the poor, and strengthen institutional tools to care for the needy and support entrepreneurship, creativity and small and medium enterprises.

The local leaders commended the King’s efforts to improve the economy of local communities and his directives to launch projects to achieve comprehensive and sustainable development.

Their demands focused on finding solutions to poverty and unemployment in their region, supporting farmers, agricultural projects ,and employment programs through productive and job-generating projects, improving health, educational, cultural, and infrastructure services, supporting charities and sports clubs, attracting investments to the region and paying more attention to the livestock sector.

Accompanied by Minister of Public Works and Housing Yahya Al-Kasbi and Mafraq Governor Salman Najada, Issawi handed the keys to their new houses to 20 needy families.
