Security of investments a top national priority, Interior Minister

Amman, 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.
