Amman/ March 5/ (Petra)-- Deputizing for Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, President of Aqaba Special Economic Zone Nader Dahabi Saturday opened the exhibition of the largest floating library in the world onboard the oldest ever vessel "Dollos" which has been sailing since 1914.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Dahabi said Her Majesty Queen Rania gives special attention to local and international voluntary activities designed to promote cultural exchange and mutual understanding between nations and with the aim of reaching a secure world rich in knowledge and peaceful human
relations.

He conveyed Queen Rania's greeting to the ship crew and thanked them for organizing the exhibition which includes over 6000 titles.

The 180-meter-long ship arrived in Aqaba last Thursday and will stay until May 20.

Dollos has a crew of 320 persons from more 40 countries and it is owned by a non-profitable German foundation called " Valuable Books for All". It is two years younger than the legend Titanic. Over the past 27 years, Dollos has docked at over 500 ports in 100 countries and it has hosted over 17 million visitors.

Actually, according to the article, Rania wasn't present at the occasion (therefore no pics). The exhibition was opened on her behalf by Nader Dahabi.

On March 1 or 2, I read on Petra that she was going to open the floating exhibition on March 5th, apparently she didn't. Maybe, she changed her mind at the last minute..

King Inaugurates Jordan Road

Pet0635 4 0382


King Inaugurates Jordan Road
[1]Amman, March 7(Petra)-- His Majesty King Abdullah II
inaugurated on Monday the Jordan Road, which was
constructed by the Greater Amman Municipality in cooperation with
the Ministry of Public Works and Housing with a total cost of JD 50
million.

His Majesty was briefed on the project's phases as well as
on its developmental, environmental, and economic objectives.

The Jordan Road links Amman with the capital's main highway
to Jerash and Irbid. The road cuts the distance that motorists used
to take between the Amman's downtown and northern governorates by
3.5 km, and these motorists would not be forced to take the
traffic-jammed Queen Rania St on their travel to the north.

This is proved by the road's high economic advantage
since it would provide easy access for motorists, reduces their time
on traffic and saves their fuel consumption.

The road also gains access for better development to the
populated areas that it serves, either through investments or
growing businesses.

Mayor of the Greater Amman Municipality Nidal Hadid delivered
a speech in which he pointed to the importance of the Jordan Road,
which represents a vital lifeline for Amman's residents who wish to
have easy access to other areas in the Kingdom, especially the
northern governorates.

The ceremony was attended by Royal Court Minister Samir Rifai,
Minister of Public Works and Housing Raed Abu Sa'ud and other
officials.

King off to US today

from Jordantimes:

AMMAN (JT) — His Majesty King Abdullah heads for the US today with a full itinerary of political talks, meetings, media interviews and speaking engagements. The King is scheduled to meet with President George W. Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other senior administration officials for talks on bilateral ties, regional developments and global concerns.

He will also meet with senior members of Congress.

During his visit, King Abdullah will meet with members of the US' high-tech business community in North Carolina, home of Cisco Systems, which announced at the World Economic Forum in 2003 a leadership role in the Jordan Education Initiative.

This initiative aims to improve education within Jordan and establish a successful model for education reform in other developing countries.

The Monarch will also address a large academic audience at Georgetown University in Washington, where he attended the School of Foreign Service and where he is to be granted an honorary doctorate degree. King Abdullah spoke at Georgetown University's prestigious Centre for Contemporary Arab Studies in October 1999.

He will also speak to leading journalists, correspondents and national TV anchorpersons.

King Abdullah visited the US in December, when he met with Bush, senior administration officials and congressmen.
