(MENAFN- Jordan Times) AMMAN — Royal Court Chief Yousef Issawi on Thursday inaugurated Royal initiative projects in Aqaba and Maan, established in implementation of the directives of His Majesty King Abdullah during his meetings with the people and dignitaries of the two governorates.

The ventures covered the health, education, tourist, development and services sectors. These are all vital sectors under the Royal initiatives.
