JCI urges entrepreneurs to tap into JD200 mln craft sector potential

A Jordan Chamber of Industry (JCI) official has highlighted untapped opportunities for growth in Jordan’s craft sector worth nearly JD200 million, urging entrepreneurs to take advantage of the industry’s vast potential. Speaking to the Jordan News Agency (Petra), JCI’s craft sector representative, Fawaz Shakaa, said that opportunities in the craft sector are split between local production destined for the domestic market and for export to foreign markets, in the food, engineering, chemical, construction, and clothing industries. The craft sector is a crucial component of Jordan’s economy and generates employment. Therefore, he added, we are determined to speed the actual implementation of national programs and activities related to craft establishments to support and promote it in non-traditional regional and global markets. In this regard, Shakaa advocated for offering incentives, special support programs, and incubators for innovative and entrepreneurial ideas for micro-enterprises and projects, in order to strengthen the position of craft businesses within the national economy and the tendency to increase their marketing, administrative, and technical capabilities, Additionally, he urged collaboration and partnerships among government institutions, large businesses, and craft establishments, as well as the inclusion of accurate and thorough data on craft establishments in the national statistics system. This would help identify their needs and better target assistance toward them.

QNB Stars League: Al Wakrah Defeats Al Rayyan to Remain Fourth

Al Wakrah defeated Al Rayyan 1-0 in Week 21 of the 2022-2023 season QNB Stars League at the Al Gharafa Stadium on Wednesday.

The only goal was scored by Mohamed Benyettou in the 76th minute. Al Rayyan were reduced to 10 men when goalkeeper Ivanildo Rodrigues was sent off in the 18th minute. Adding to their woes, Sofiane Boufal missed a penalty for Al Rayyan in the 51st minute.

Al Wakrah increased their point tally to 36 points, while Al Rayyan remained on 17 points.

Al Wakrah excelled in terms of performance and they were the best even before the Al Rayyan goalkeeper was sent off. Al Wakrah got their first real opportunity in the 14th minute, but Yousef Abdulrizag shot over the crossbar. Soon, he was alone again, but the Al Rayyan goalkeeper fouled him and earned the red card. Al Wakrah dominated the game and almost scored, but Murad Naji was off-target.

The second half started off on an exciting note and Al Rayyan would have soon taken the lead had it not been for the alertness of Al Wakrah goalkeeper Omair Abdullah, who saved the penalty kick taken by Boufal. Al Wakrah grew in confidence and then found their winning goal through Benyettou, who came up with a header.
