Addressing the event, Prince El Hassan said technical skills, including innovation, development and creativity, are the basis for industrialization and empowerment, pointing out that "true" investment is investing in human capital, which represents skills, knowledge and expertise.

Prince El Hassan noted: "This award reflects faith, morals, science and work.

Noting a set of recommendations to overcome the challenges facing Jordan's educational and vocational training sector, he referred to the need to change social perceptions and activate the vocational laws, which would reflect "positively" on regulating the the worker-employer relations, achieving balanced policies, and shifting from lending small projects to partnership with lending institutions.

In this regard, Prince El Hassan also said providing tax and non-tax incentives would stimulate investments in the private sector, noting the need to maintain a "large" number of trainers and teachers of vocational education.
