During the launch, a cooperation agreement was signed between the Business Development Centre (BDC) and the Irbid Chamber of Industry to implement the third phase of the Tanmyeh project.

The Tanmyeh project aims to train 2,000 Jordanian and Syrian young men and women for three years in East Amman, Zarqa and Irbid, in specialised  vocational training based on the real needs of the industrial sector.

In Irbid Governorate, the project aims to reach 1,000 young people, 30 per cent of whom are Syrian refugees and 50 per cent of them girls. The programme will train and employ 700 of them within industrial companies, according to the available professions.

The Tanmyeh project is implemented by the BDC and funded by the French Agency in partnership between the public and private sectors.
