AMMAN — Jordan ranked 79th on the Global Innovation Index with a score of 30.8, while ranked 14th in the region and 9th in the Arab World, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported on Sunday.

The Jordan Strategy Forum talked about Jordan’s ranking in the index, saying that if you look at the factors which contributed in Jordan getting this low score and ranking, “we find that the difficulty in having financial facilities was the most prominent factor out of all, in addition to companies not providing training programmes for their employees”.

The forum said that innovation is an important factor, which affects positively economical challenges worldwide and locally through providing new job opportunities and improving the standard of living.
