Istitieh told a press conference Sunday that the employment program aims at providing job opportunities for 60,000 young Jordanians as well as the beneficiaries of the National Aid Fund, who will be able to keep up to 7 percent of the fund’s financial support even while employed.

The initiative is also open to any private sector institution in the Kingdom, but only if it is registered with the Social Security Corporation, according to the minister.

He highlighted some of the most prominent measures that have been implemented since the launch of the program, including training the ministry’s staff, 192 liaison officers from various entities connected to the program, visiting private sector institutions to introduce the program, and holding workshops for representatives of employers.

The program will begin a nationwide campaign starting on Monday to introduce institutions and youth to it, Istitieh added.
