Amman, (Petra) –– The newly-established Investment Protection Unit has started its work to ensure security protection of investments and businessmen across the Kingdom, Assistant Public Security Department Director for Operations, Brig. Fawaz Al-Maaytah, announced.

He told a meeting held Monday at the Jordan Chamber of Industry that the Preventive Security Unit will have the key security task, and that liaison officers had been assigned in various industrial complexes in the Kingdom.

During the meeting with heads of industrial chambers, industrial sector representatives and security officials, Maaytah said that the unit had the task of preserving investment as a societal responsibility due to its contribution to community building through recruitment.

Deputy chairman of the Jordan Chamber of Industry, Mohammed Rifai, said that the protection of factories means preserving national economic security, as the industrial sector is concerned with the employment of youth.

He added that the chamber will intensify efforts in cooperation with industrial chambers to spread awareness among factory owners to deal with any attacks on businesses in cooperation with the public security.

The chamber will regularly hold meetings with the security services and investors in the industrial estates, and will also meet local community organisations to promote investment in their regions, he said.

For his part, Amman Chamber of Industry president, Senator Ziyad Homsi, said that the problems of unemployment and poverty can only be addressed by encouraging investment and that security is the key to attracting business.
