AMMAN — The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Supply organized a workshop to assess the readiness of e-commerce in Jordan, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.

Tuesday’s workshop was held in coordination with all stakeholders from the public and private sectors and civil society institutions.

Deputy Secretary General of Interior Commerce, Emad Al-Bzour, said that the ministry initiated last year the implementation of an e-commerce readiness assessment project in Jordan that was aimed at increasing the capacity of Jordan’s e-commerce.
