November 3, 2017

AMMAN — Madaba has joined the UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network under the Crafts and Folk Art category, Tourism Minister Lina Annab said on Wednesday.
Madaba was among 19 cities from countries that had not been represented in the network before, Annab said in a statement, adding that UNESCO launched the network in 2004 to enhance cooperation with cities that adopted creativity as a strategic factor for civil development.
The minister said that the candidacy file was presented in June by a specialised local committee that comprised several representatives from local departments in the governorate.
