(Petra) –– Interior Minister
Ghaleb al-Zu'bi said on Tuesday that maintaining
the security of investment facilities
and their workers is a top priority for
the country and its agencies to ensure
their sustainability and unhindered economic
activity and productivity.
In a meeting with governors,
the minister urged that security, administrative
and human potentials and local resources
in the governorates be devoted to protecting
investments as a mainstay of the Jordanian
economy and key source of revenue for
the treasury, in addition to their contribution
to fighting poverty and employment and
creating jobs for the local communities.
The minister asked the governors
to make field tours of factories and businesses
in cooperation with concerned authorities
and report back to him on their needs
and the problems facing them, and to launch
mechanized security patrols around industrial
estates and factories across the Kingdom.
