PM launches National Strategy for Youth

Amman, Prime Minister Omar Razzaz Monday launched the National Strategy for Youth 2019 – 2025 that aims at creating a productive generation that is capable of being creative and innovative.

The strategy reflects the attention paid to the youth by His Majesty Abdullah II and HRH Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II who directed the government to develop a national strategy for youth which would reflect the country’s institutions growing care for this important group of citizens.

It aims to enhance youth’s activities and develop their skills and grow their knowledge to enable them to create and innovate, as well as practicing in the political and public life, deal with this age’s challenges and predict the future and achieve sustainable development through a self-reliant youth as part of cooperation and coordination between all partners.

The multipronged strategy include: youth, education and technology; good governance and the rule of law; effective citizenship; entrepreneurship and economic empowerment, effective participation and leadership; societal security; youth, health and physical activity.

As he sponsored the launching ceremony of the strategy at the Al Hussein Youth City (The Sports City) in Amman, Razzaz emphasized that what distinguishes this strategy is that “it was not developed in the lobbies of the Ministry of Youth, but through many dialogues conducted in youth centers, schools and universities.”

“This is your product and you were the ones who created this strategy and you weren’t the recipients,” he said addressing the youth, pointing out to the government’s role and duty to create the suitable infrastructure that would encourage young Jordanians to assume their true role through effective citizenship that His Majesty encouraged to pursue and is being followed up by HRH the Crown Prince.
