AMMAN — Jordan has the highest rates of ICT services in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), according to an Ericsson report on the Networked Society City index.

Tareq Saadi, the regional manager of northern Middle East in Ericsson, indicated Tuesday that the report showed that Jordan was among 11 countries in MENA in the highest rates of ICT services, constituting 4.6 per cent of the total gross domestic product compared with the regional rate of 3.5 per cent.

Around 7 per cent of the Kingdom’s population work in the ICT sector, whereas the regional rate does not exceed 4 per cent, Saadi said.

He added that the study showed a possibility of more investments in Jordan to attract the most modern technologies, such as 4G LTE networks.
