    Amman, Mar. 16 (Petra) -- High operation costs are the biggest challenge facing the industrial sector, limiting companies' ability to expand and create new job opportunities, said the East Amman Industrial Investors Association (EAIIA) Chairman Iyad Abu Haltam.

    During a seminar held in cooperation with the German International Cooperation Agency (GIZ), he called on public and private sectors and international donors to cooperate to alleviate challenges and address hinderances in the industrial sector.

    A study must be conducted in the industrial market to define required skills and training courses must be held to close gaps in this field, Haltam added during the gathering held through GIZ's Trade for Employment Project (T4E).

    Britta van Erckelens, Deputy Team Leader at T4E, said cooperation with the EAIIA is part of the strategic partnership between Germany and Jordan, which prioritizes trade and employment among other sectors in Jordan.

    The seminar seeks to improve the work environment and quality and reduce the disadvantages of job rotation by enhancing dialogue between public and private sectors and international organizations, added Erckelens.

    She praised the partnership with the EAIIA and its employment support unit, which aims to improve the quality of training offered to youth and women.
