Duwairi noted that the program will train and qualify the Authority's staff, departments, and companies through capacity building, enhancing their experience, and introducing them to modern international practices to improve operation and maintenance skills in various water facilities.

He emphasized that the training aims to enhance the performance of the water sector by diversifying knowledge and experience in line with strategic visions for managing water resources efficiently, reducing losses, and developing institutional performance.

Le Cour stated that his government supports initiatives that enable Jordan to address its water challenges and build capabilities. He noted that this program aims to develop employees' skills and knowledge in the water sector and facilitate experience exchange.
