Partnership agreement to launch 1st technical center in Amman signed
Amman, Feb. 2 (Petra)--The Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship on Thursday signed a partnership agreement with Migrate, a leading business knowledge and networking company, to establish the first technology center in Amman.
The agreement was signed by Ahmed Hanandeh, Minister of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship, and Migrate Chairman, Nader Nehme.
The center aims, according to a ministry statement, to provide integrated solutions and incentives to enhance youth opportunities to obtain digitally enabled job opportunities by working with operators from the private sector, self-employment, or starting their own entrepreneurial projects.
Speaking at the signing ceremony, Hanandeh stressed the importance of spreading entrepreneurship culture among Jordanian youth and the local community, and enhancing their life skills, intellectual growth, and innovation capabilities through these technical centers.
This effort would provide spaces to launch creative projects and reduce obstacles for entrepreneurs to start establishing their businesses and develop them, the minister added.
For her part, the Deputy British Ambassador said lauded outcomes of UK's funding for Youth, Technology, & Jobs Project, as her country supports job opportunities in Jordan.
The first technical center delivers opportunities and skills to the community to create job opportunities in Jordan, which provides a place for skills development programs and joint work and communication for trainers, entrepreneurs and self-employed owners, the diplomat added.
Meanwhile, Nehme said the project will provide multiple opportunities for young people and businesswomen to develop and expand their businesses, exchange knowledge and benefit from the center's services, primarily joint work and training programs seeking to develop their skills.
Also, the agreement aims to establish the first technical center in Amman, which will be designed, operated and run by Migrate within the plan of Ministry of Digital Economy's Youth, Technology, & Jobs Project to launch technical centers in Amman's underprivileged regions and governorates, the statement said.
The center will serve youth and women entrepreneurs and provide common spaces for freelancers and an incubator for startups, the statement noted.
