Focusing on youth problems key priority: Jordanian PM

 

Amman Jordanian Prime Minister Hani al-Mulki said on Friday his government is keen on dialogue and to listen to all views presented by youth, in order to solve their problems and addressing their challenges.

Al-Mulki made these remarks as he, along with his ministerial team, met with 150 youth from across the Kingdom. He also said that all measures taken by the government came to guarantee a better life for the youth.

The prime minister noted that when King Abdullah ordered to establish the ministry of youth, the idea was not only for sports but also for boosting dialogue with this key sector, Petra reported.

He stressed that the government couldn't plan for the future without knowing youth needs and priorities. The government, al-Mulki said, had adopted the slogan of self-employment rather than hiring, noting that the national economy is generating 1.6 million job opportunities, half of which goes to non-Jordanians.

O his part, Minister of Youth Bashir Rawashdeh stressed the importance of such meetings between the government and youth, noting that such events are essential to building democracy.
