AMMAN — A conference on the private sector and its role in guiding growth and development will be held on Thursday at the Dead Sea.

Organised by the Jordan Enterprise Development Cooperation (JEDCO) in cooperation with “Mubadara”, a parliamentary group, the two-day event will provide a platform for representatives of the public and private sectors, the European Union and international organisations working in the area of financing and development to discuss means to promote entrepreneurship.

JEDCO Chief Executive Officer Yarub Qudah said participants will also discuss ways to develop small-and medium-sized businesses, which reached 156,728 in 2011, 97 per cent of the total projects operating in the Kingdom.

He added that discussions will also focus on the role of the government and private sector in creating work opportunities, in addition to presenting drafts on the national strategy and law governing microbusinesses.
