AMMAN, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- Jordan's Prime Minister, Omar Razzaz, on Thursday laid the cornerstone for a Chinese textile factory that will create hundreds of jobs in the south of Jordan, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

The factory, affiliated to the Jerash Holdings Company which was recently listed on Nasdaq Capital Market as the first Jordanian enterprise, is in line with Jordan's efforts to attract investors from across the world to create jobs and drive growth, Razzaz said at the event.

"The investment by Chinese investors shows their strong belief in the country and its economy," he added.

The factory, which will initially create around 500 jobs for the youth in Al Hasa area in the south of Jordan, will also help train young Jordanians on skills in textile industry.

At a later stage, as many as 1,000 jobs will be created.

For his part, the Chinese Ambassador to Jordan, Pan Weifang, said that the establishment of the project stands for the fruitful cooperations between China and Jordan.

Expressing China's confidence in the security and stability of the kingdom, Pan also stressed the commitment from his country to provide grants and investments to Jordan.

Choi Lin Hung, chairman of the board of the Jerash Holdings, said the opening of the new facility is an important milestone in the history of the company, which has started operations in Jordan since 2000. Enditem
