Speaking at Young Engineers Conference (YEC) on Sunday, the envoy noted the Nigerian market is "promising" for the Jordanian engineering sector, noting that his country's authorities concerned with engineering activities will invite Jordan Engineers Association (JEA) to visit Abuja at the end of next month.

The two sides will sign an agreement to facilitate ways to benefit from Jordanian engineering expertise in Nigeria at all levels, the diplomat pointed out.

In addition, Yabo welcomed holding a Jordanian-Nigerian engineering exhibition during a JEA delegation's visit to Abuja, to network the two countries' engineering companies.

For his part, JEA president, Ahmed Al-Zoubi, said the association has expanded its training and employment programs, created a fund to enhance its budget, and prepared an action plan based on scientific criteria to run and implement training programs for Jordanian engineers to work in Germany.

To date, a number of Jordanian engineers have reached the final stage of final interviews with German operators, Zoubi pointed out.

JEA has gone a long way in coordinating with partners in local and international institutions, especially with regard to the African, Canadian, and American markets, with the aim of benefiting from Jordanian engineering competencies and services, according to Zoubi.
