His appointment to the position came as part of the 14th ICCM conference held in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

In a press statement on Sunday, Amayreh said this achievement will support Jordanian and Arab tourism globally, as Jordan is one of the countries entrusted with preserving the world’s mosaics.

MIMAR, with the support of ICCM projects, will restore and maintain Jordan’s mosaic sites, especially in Madaba, the Kingdom’s city of mosaics.

The Jordanian delegation participating in the conference presented working papers on efforts to restore a mosaic panel at the Baptism Site, while the other paper focused on restoring a mosaic panel in the Khattabiya area in Madaba, and the third tackled mosaic floors in Jordan’s historical sites and efforts to preserve and restore them, he noted.

Established in 1977, the Rome-based ICCM holds its conference every three years in a member state.
