Established in 2002, the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology [MoICT] is at the heart of the Kingdom's transformation into a knowledge based economy that contributes to the socio-economic development of the Kingdom.   MoICT is the policy maker of information technology, telecommunications, and post in Jordan. The ministry’s policy calls for market liberalization, ending monopoly and withdrawal of the government from its majority ownership position in telecom & postal operators and public-private partnerships.

MoICT fosters ICT initiatives that promote the adoption of ICTby all segments of the society and stimulate local and foreign investments. The government's commitment to ICT as a catalyst to development, particularly through e-learning and e-government, is creating business opportunities.

Jordan's open, transparent and competitive environment, sophisticated communications infrastructure, strong regulatory reform and independent ICT regulator, technically skilled and growing competitive-wage workforce, committed government and strong leadership support have established a dynamic and growing ICT sector that presents exciting investment opportunities.
