Under the Patronage of Eng. Yarub Qudah, Chief Executive Officer of Jordan Enterprise. The Information Technology Association of Jordan- Int@j has held its Members’ Support Seminar in cooperation with Jordan Enterprise (JE) -JSMP (an EU funded project) on Tuesday December 22, 2009 at the Landmark hotel in Amman.
Apart from the association’s members, the event was attended by HE Yarub Qudah – CEO of Jordan Enterprise, HE Ahmad Hiyasat – Chairman of TRC, , and other key partners.
During the event, int@j’s CEO Abdel-Majied Shamlawi presented int@j planned activities and members’ services for 2010, the revealed agenda encompasses a rich portfolio in products and services that are designed to grow the ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and ICTES (ICT Enabled Services) sectors further, and to provide members with customized support solutions that foster entrepreneurship, growth, increased exports, and quality employment opportunities for Jordanians.
int@j revamped portfolio of services was developed based on the results of a recent research program conducted amongst members, to feature products and services that focus on advocacy, community building and networking, marketing, extend business development support (especially to start-ups), corporate and member services, trade promotion, and recruitment services. 
Mr. Ayman Mazahreh, Chairman of int@j Board of Directors commented “int@j is set to serve the ICT & ICTES Sectors and its members through further developing its services and programs to enhance the ICT & ICTES sectors growth and efficiency”, Mr. Mazahreh also highlighted one of int@j’s key deliverables early 2010 that is the publication of Jordan’s first comprehensive and accurate sector report, building on the ISIC 4 classification of economic activities. “This particular publication forms a critical milestone not only for the ICT/ ICTES sectors, but for Jordan in general as this is probably the first time this international classification framework is used, and incorporates most of the sector companies that contributed their financial data.  For the first time, comparing our sector’s results and accomplishments will make true sense, as we will now be comparing apples to apples, and oranges to oranges by using the corresponding ISIC 4 codes to specify which economic activities exactly constitute ICT and ICTES”, continues Mazahreh.

In addition to int@j’s program of work for 2010, the event also featured available support for the ICT and ICTES sectors through assistance programs by Jordan Enterprise, NAFES, and Business Development Center (BDC).  “I believe that by joining these four strong organizations together, Jordan’s ICT & ICTES sectors have access to a range of tools and services that will provide them with the necessary support to continue growing into a regional ICT & ICTES hub that attracts foreign direct investments, generates high-yielding export volumes, and most importantly, increases quality jobs for our fellow Jordanians”, concludes HE Yarub Qudah.
Since its establishment, Int@j has been exerting a high effort level aiming at advancing the Jordanian ICT & ICTES sector. Int@j has been looking for various partnerships with different institutions on the local, regional and international levels aiming at creating better ICT and ICTES industry in Jordan, increasing the awareness of ICT and ICTES services and products and stressing on the benefits of integrating ICT and ICTES in other sectors.

The Information Technology Association of Jordan is an ICT and ICTES industry-support association founded in 2000 with the aim of improving the dynamics of Jordan's ICT & ICTES markets and developing the Kingdom's ICT & ICTES related activities.
