Jordan at a Glance

Jordan is a land steeped in history. It has been home to some of humankind’s earliest settlements and villages, and relics of many of the world's great civilizations can still be seen today.

As the crossroads of the Middle East, the lands of Jordan and Palestine have served as a strategic nexus connecting Asia, Africa and Europe. Thus, since the dawn of civilization, Jordan's geography has given it an important role to play as a conduit for trade and communications, connecting east and west, north and south. Jordan continues to play this role today.

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, which once captivated ancient travelers, continues to enthrall a whole new generation as a modern, vibrant nation.

From the haunting, primeval starkness of Wadi Rum, to the teeming centre of urban Amman, from the majestic ruins of bygone civilizations to the timeless splendor of the Dead Sea, Jordan is unveiled as a unique destination offering breathtaking and mysterious sights, high standard accommodations, exquisite cuisine and countless activities that can provide visitors with inspiration, motivation, and rejuvenation.

Marveling at herds of gazelles and Oryx and migrating birds, camping amidst the grandeur of Wadi Rum or Dana Reserve, trekking the ancient caravan trails from the highlands of Moab and Edom, hiking the wooded hills of biblical Gilead, or experiencing the unique, cleansing mud baths of the Dead Sea are just a few examples of the treasures awaiting visitors to this unique kingdom.

Jordan's ICT Sector

Jordan is already a regional leader when it comes to the ICT sector and one of the main launch pads of entrepreneurship in the Middle East and North Africa. The sector is one of Jordan's fastest growing industries, contributing 12% of the GDP and creating over 80,000 value-added jobs (6% of the labor force). Jordan’s ICT exports grew eight-fold since 2001 and currently reach over 40 countries around the globe. Amman is recognized as one of the 10 best destinations to start a technology firm worldwide and a leading centre for developing Arabic internet content.

The ICT sector enjoys a mature ecosystem and the necessary supporting institutions needed to ensure success. The Kingdom’s ecosystem is more advanced than elsewhere in the region, given the availability of universities, tech firms, global players, investors, venture capitalists, accelerator incubators and mentorship programs. The sector also offers a reliable and robust broadband network with affordable services and wireless nationwide access.
