AMMAN — The government will restructure, rather than abolish, the Ministry of Labour in response to the results of the comprehensive national dialogue conducted by the Economic and Social Council, Prime Minister Bisher Khasawneh said on Wednesday.

The public sector modernisation roadmap initially included a proposal to dissolve the ministry.

During a Lower House session addressing amendments to the 2022 Social Security Law, Khasawneh said that the feedback from the national dialogue indicated that the majority of the population does not believe that abolishing the Ministry of Labour would be effective, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

After receiving the Economic and Social Council's report on the results of the dialogue, the government decided to maintain and restructure the ministry’s tasks and responsibilities, particularly regarding vocational education and training, the prime minister said.

The government’s institutional restructuring proposals within the public sector modernisation roadmap have been subject to review, amendment and correction, Khasawneh added.
