During a meeting with the vice president of the Jordan Engineers Association, Fawzi Masad, and a visiting German delegation to discuss the employment of Jordanian engineers in Germany, Steitieh added that the ministry is exerting efforts to export Jordanian talents to all parts of the world.

The head of the German delegation, Stefan Harms, who represents a number of companies in the business sector in northern Germany, said that the German market is in need of 400,000 skilled laborers in all fields, including technicians and engineers of all specialties.

He also said that engineers are needed in civil, mechanical and electrical areas, but added that those who want to qualify must pass a German language exam, which is one of the conditions for obtaining a work visa in Germany.

Harms announced the start of a pilot project to hire Jordanian engineers to work in Germany once they pass the required procedures.

Masad confirmed that the association has taken steps to find jobs for its members in the German market, given the diversity of opportunities there. He added during the meeting, which was attended by the head of the German Universities Alumni Association and a member of the Engineering Services Export Team to Germany at the association, that there is a sincere desire and cooperation on the German side to hire Jordanian engineers to work in Germany.
