AMMAN — Royal Court Chief Yousef Issawi on Thursday inaugurated Royal initiative projects in Aqaba and Maan, established in implementation of the directives of His Majesty King Abdullah during his meetings with the people and dignitaries of the two governorates. 

Issawi, who is also head of the follow-up committee for the implementation of Royal initiatives, checked on several projects being implemented in these governorates under the Royal initiatives, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. 

The ventures covered the health, education, tourist, development and services sectors. These are all vital sectors under the Royal initiatives. 

The Royal Court chief inaugurated the expansion of the Princess Basma Health Centre with the aim to improve the level of health services offered to citizens. The estimated expansion will be 1,750 square metres, making the total area of the centre 2,350 square metres.

The centre has general medicine, eye, dentistry, maternity and family medicine clinics, in addition to a laboratory, pharmacy, X-ray department and administrative rooms. 

Issawi also opened the new building of the Khadijah Bint Khuwailed Secondary School for Girls, established under a Royal initiative to cancel the two-shift system at the old building. The new, three-storey building includes 29 classrooms that can accommodate up to 1,100 students.

As for the tour to check up on Royal initiative projects, Issawi visited the rehabilitation project of the late Sharif Hussein Bin Ali’s residence and the Aqaba Castle. The project plans to turn the 845-square-metre house into a museum on the Great Arab Revolt.

In Maan, the Royal Court chief visited the rehabilitation project of King Abdullah I’s residence. The rehabilitation is 65 per cent completed and will turn the palace into a national museum on the history of the Jordanian state.
