He has called for the acceleration of the digitization of more government services, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

According to Rajbeh, Jordan is one of the leading countries in the region in terms of using digital transformation in a variety of economic sectors, particularly in financial, agricultural, industrial, and health services.

He believes that digital transformation can help to reduce operational costs, simplify and accelerate procedures for services provided to citizens, and provide high-quality services with transparency, performance monitoring, and data security.

Sanad doubled government servicesRajbeh highlighted the role of the Sanad application, which has helped to double the number of government services provided during the recent period.

He noted that business owners and investors tend to invest in countries with a ready and developed infrastructure in digital transformation and service automation.

He added that the Economic Modernization Vision underscores the need to accelerate the pace of the government’s digital transformation by establishing partnerships with the private sector.

The vision indicates that around 25,000 employees worked in the ICT sector in 2021, accounting for 1.6 percent of total employment volume in the Kingdom. By 2033, the number of full-time workers in the sector is projected to reach 101,000.
