The Kazakh delegation also visited Jabal Al Qalaa (Mount of the Citadel) which GAM renewed and rehabilitated to make it a touristic site for all visitors and to promote interior inbound and outbound tourism.
GAM also held an open day meeting in which complaints of the citizens were discussed.
Mayor Maani passed instructions to keep public gardens open from 7am to 10 pm in summer and till 8 pm in winter.
The mayor stressed GAM’s keenness on expanding green space and the best utilisation of urban spaces in residential complexes and transferring them into breathing spaces for the residents, especially children.
He also listened to the demands and remarks of the Ammanites, which centered around regulations, opening and paving roads, public transport services, and extending new service, along with many other service issues.-TradeArabia News Service
