The Information and Communications Technology Association of Jordan (Int@j) announced organization of the first Jordanian pavilion at COMEX Telecom and Technology Exhibition and Conference 2023 in the Omani capital, Muscat, from May 22-25, with the support of Business Growth Activity of U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). In a statement on Saturday, Intaj said Jordanian pavilion will feature 8 Jordanian companies in the field of information and communication technology (ICT), as part of the continuous efforts to explore new markets for Jordanian products and business solutions, and exchange expertise with participating companies globally. Intaj CEO, Nidal Bitar, said participation reflects “strong” desire of Jordanian companies to seize commercial and technical opportunities offered by this “pioneering” exhibition, and enhance cooperation with Omani, Gulf and international companies. Jordanian pavilion, he noted, comes in light of expectations of growth in technology spending in Oman to reach $3.5 billion by 2026, according to figures from IDC Research. Oman Vision 2040 aims to enhance the technological capabilities and communications in the Sultanate, achieve digital transformation, invest in developing infrastructure, people and systems, and use artificial intelligence and cybersecurity solutions, he pointed out. Bitar highlighted importance of this “pivotal” step in strengthening position of Jordanian companies as “main” players in the region’s technology sector, which affirms the “pioneering” spirit of Jordanian companies in this field. He also valued USAID Business Growth Activity for its support to companies by providing multiple technical services, which helped prepare marketing materials for companies and contribute to paying participation costs in the exhibition to covering companies’ participation fees in Intaj’s “Market Study” platform.
