Ministry of Agriculture Spokesperson Nimer Haddadin said that the ministry, in cooperation with related ministries, is planning to allow the recruitment of new foreign workers in the agricultural sector.
The government announced in June last year that it had stopped the recruitment of new guest workers in an effort to regulate the labour market and study the number of guest workers in Jordan.
The decision had angered segments of the agriculture sector, pushing the government to later grant exceptions for the sector and announcing earlier this year that it would be unifying guest workers’ permit fees. ■
