Qatar Chamber hosted Tuesday a Jordanian delegation led by Secretary-General of the Jordanian Ministry of Labor Farouq Al Hadidi to review means of promoting cooperation in the field of employment through the Qatari initiative to employ 10,000 Jordanian youth in Qatar and the electronic employment platform.

Second Vice-Chairman of Qatar Chamber Rashid bin Hamad Al Athba, who chaired the Qatari side during the meeting, welcomed the Jordanian delegation and praised the distinct brotherly relations between the State of Qatar and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

Al Athba highlighted the great mutual interest in strengthening the bilateral relations and advancing them to wider horizons, noting the exchange of visits at the government and private levels which reflect the keenness of the Jordanian brothers on further developing the relations with Qatar.

He noted that Qatar Chamber hosted during the past two months two delegations chaired by H.E. Jordanian Minister of Labor Nedal El Batayneh and Chairman of Jordan Chamber Nael Al Kabariti.

Al Athba said that the opportunity is open for business owners from both countries to implement more partnerships and trade alliances and to enter into joint ventures and investments both in Qatar and Jordan, especially as the investment climate on both sides is encouraging.

He noted that the Qatari initiative to employ 10,000 Jordanian youth in the Qatari market adds a lot to the distinguished relations between the two brotherly countries, and affirms that Qatar is interested in benefiting from the abilities and skills of the youth in the comprehensive development, especially in light of the quality, proficiency and respect of the Jordanian community in Qatar.

Al Athba underlined that Qatar Chamber strongly supports the initiative and encourages local companies and employers to employ Jordanian labor in all fields, especially as they are well-trained and highly qualified.

He noted the importance of the electronic employment platform in facilitating the employment of the Jordanian labor and informing the Qatari private sector of the most prominent disciplines that can be used in the Qatari market.

For his part, Secretary-General of the Jordanian Ministry of Labor Farouq Al Hadidi reviewed the advantages and the way of work of the national employment platform (Sajjil), which is a developed alternative to the previous platform, noting that all observations and queries raised by the Qatari private sector were taken into consideration in the development of the new national employment platform.

He added that the platform has become the only national system in Jordan to deal with employment and meet the needs of the private sector locally and abroad, pointing out that the national employment platform was launched in mid-September last year and the number of registered so far has reached 29 thousand people. He expected that the number would increase by 10 thousand per month over the next period.

Al Hadidi praised the cooperation between the Jordanian Ministry of Labor and the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs in Qatar, as well as the cooperation with Qatar Chamber as the representative of the private sector and a role model.
