King Abdullah met on Sunday local community leaders and key figures in Karak Governorate as part of ongoing public outreach meetings.
Speaking at the meeting which was attended by Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II, King Abdullah expressed keenness on continuing field visits to meet with Jordanians across the governorates, especially after the lifting of COVID-related restrictions.
He said a return to normalcy requires that all receive the vaccine, especially school and university students, stressing the need to develop the economy while maintaining efforts to counter the pandemic.
The King noted his instructions to the government to address socioeconomic challenges and to work to utilise available investment opportunities, in addition to streamlining measures for the private sector.
The king further called for placing further emphasis on the tourism sector as a major contributor to the economy, underlining the need to capitalise on Karak’s manufacturing, agricultural, and tourism potential.
