Bitar pointed out that the Jordanian ICT sector has become a catalyst for all other working sectors as it is well advanced and highly reputable, adding, “We are delighted to join the DCO as this association allows its members to accelerate the growth in the digital economy and to maximize the sector’s contribution by providing the tools necessary to ensure continued growth and expansion.

The announcement continues DCO’s ambitious global membership expansion program to partner with governments, leading technology companies and nonprofits to create global digital prosperity. The DCO’s agenda includes programs to improve cross-border data flows, market expansion support for small and medium enterprises, and empowerment of entrepreneurs, women and youth.
