More jobs in Jordan after MoU

The Jordanian Government said that there will be a large number of jobs for Sri Lanka's skilled labour force during the next eight months following the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), signed between the two countries last week.

Minister of Labour Dr. Bassem Khalil Salem signed the MoU on behalf of the Jordanian Government, while Foreign Employment, Promotion and Welfare Minister Keheliya Rambukwella signed the MoU on behalf of the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLBFE).

Minister Rambukwella on his arrival told the 'Sunday Observer' that in addition to the MoU, the Lankan labour delegation had attended a high level governmental forum on 'Woman Migrant Workers and Human Trafficking'. The forum was organised by the United Nations International Fund and represented by employment agents in both countries, employer federations, employee unions, embassy officials and top level governmental authorities.

Minister Rambukwella said the MoU will strengthen the labour laws to extend more welfare facilities including job security, fixed salaries, food and lodging for male and female Lankan workers who are expected to work in Jordan in the future.

Sri Lanka's Ambassador to Jordan Dr. A.W. Mohottala and SLBFE, Deputy General Manager L.K. Ruhunage also attended the forum.
