The Prime Minister, Bisher Al-Khasawneh, visited the Ghor Al-Safi area in the southern Jordan Valley Saturday, as part of the visits and field tours he recently started to many regions in the Kingdom.

The visit comes to inspect the public and vital facilities in the region, and to see the progress of projects related to the agricultural sector, which is a vital sector for food security and job opportunities, in implementation of the royal directives of the government to intensify field work and improve the standard of living and services for citizens.

Khasawneh was accompanied by a number of ministers during the field tour of the Ghor Al-Safi Youth Sports and Cultural Club, which was established in 1980 and offers many sports and cultural activities that serve the people of the local community.

Khasawneh will also visit the Ghor Al-Safi Governmental Hospital, to inspect the health services provided to citizens, then he will visit the Al-Yusr agricultural development project, which began in 2018, and aims to employ the youth of the southern Jordan Valley in the areas of Ghor Haditha and Ghor Al-Mazraa, by focusing on innovative agricultural patterns, which provide scientific and environmental agricultural solutions.

The PM will conclude the visit by inspecting the progress of work on the Ibn Hammad Dam project, one of the sustainability projects that aims to develop the agricultural lands surrounding the dam.

It is noteworthy that the last visit of a Jordanian prime minister to Ghor al-Safi was on February 18, 2016 (Abdullah Ensour), preceded by a visit by Samir al-Rifai in 2010 and Nader al-Dahabi in 2007.
