AMMAN — Jordan on Thursday commended the role the EU plays in the Kingdom’s comprehensive development process through supporting efforts to eliminate poverty and unemployment.

During a meeting with EU Ambassador Joanna Wronecka, Labour and Tourism Minister Nidal Katamine highlighted the ministries’ commitment to cooperating with donor countries to establish income-generating schemes.

Wronecka said the EU is funding a number of educational and employment projects in Jordan, adding that the union has presented a 35 million euro grant to the Kingdom, of which 6 million euros will go to support vocational training.
