His Majesty who chaired a meeting on Wednesday for the development council in Jerash affirmed that the continuation of efforts and enhancing the values of work and production will lead to the success of plans set for the socio-economic reform programme which includes the implementation of developmental projects in all governorates, thus achieving economic and social welfare for citizens.

During the meeting which was attended by the prime minister, Royal Court chief and the interior minister, the King said that giving a greater role to the governors to lead the development process in the governorates began to bear fruits, noting that this was evident in the accomplishments of government projects and the increase in the numbers of those willing to receive vocational training.
