Cabinet advocates tourism awareness in education

During a Cabinet session on Sunday, Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour directed Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister Mohammad Thneibat to coordinate a programme involving the education, higher education and tourism ministries to allocate a day for tourism awareness at Jordanian schools, colleges and universities.

The aim of the initiative is to increase public awareness on how to receive tourists and reflect a “civilised image” of the country, as tourism is an important source for the national economy contributing thousands of work opportunities for Jordanians, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
