AMMAN — Minister of Labour Nidal Katamine and Turkey’s Ambassador to Jordan Sedat Onal on Thursday discussed means to boost joint cooperation in the field of labour.

During the meeting, Katamine briefed the Turkish envoy on the ministry’s measures to provide jobs and training opportunities for Jordanians in the private sector.

Commending Jordan’s efforts in this domain, the Turkish envoy expressed his country’s readiness to work with the Jordanian government and ensure that Turkish companies investing in the Kingdom hire as many Jordanian workers as possible.

Also on Thursday, Katamine met with Indonesian Ambassador to Jordan Teguh Wardoyo and discussed ways to arrive at solutions for the problem of domestic workers who are currently staying at the Indonesian embassy in Amman, in a manner that safeguards their rights. 

Katamine stressed Jordan’s concern for workers’ rights and its efforts to prevent human trafficking and workers’ exploitation.
