HPC's initiative to hold this meeting stems from its strong desire that parties include, within their programs, development issues and challenges related to the demographic situation.

Dr. Khaled Al-Bakkar, Secretary General of the Party, valued the efforts undertaken by the Higher Population Council in providing accurate data on the demographic situation in the Kingdom noting that this data is of great significance in formulating public policies in various sectors.

Dr. Bakkar stressed the importance of holding such meetings for their great benefit when preparing Party programs in all sectors, as well as the benefit from this demographic data.

This meeting comes within HPC work plan for the year 2024, which includes holding meetings with Jordanian political parties to review the demographic scene in Jordan and exchange ideas about ways to encounter the challenges relevant to this scene. Through these dialogue meetings, HPC seeks to keep political parties well informed of the most recent and expected demographic changes in Jordan and the impact they have on all social, economic and environmental sectors and needs. It is to be noted that all these efforts are encompassed under the enactment and fulfilment of the royal vision calling for communication, coordination and cooperation between governmental, official institutions and civil state institutions
