Jordan a pivotal Middle East country, says Prince Hassan
HRH Prince Hassan bin Talal, Chairman of the Higher Council for Science and Technology (HCST), stressed the importance of developing a “modern industrial” base with high added value in the Mashreq region to address challenges, noting Jordan is a pivotal Middle East country.
Speaking during a dialogue session via videoconferencing, entitled: “The Post-Covid-19 World – The Required Change and Its Inevitability,” organized by the Palestinian-Jordanian Business Forum on Tuesday, Prince Hassan said these challenges call for a “new renaissance in our region,” through the development of means of networking to remove barriers.
Prince Hassan praised the efforts of young men and women, who started up small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and industries, which contribute to the socio-economic recovery from the pandemic’s effects, and confirms Jordan as a “qualitative” center for innovation.
His Highness underlined the importance of supporting potentials of emerging companies in all stages from entering the market, to forging feasible solutions and endorsing laws that facilitate their work.
On digital transformation, the Prince noted the pandemic has proven that this process is a means to raise efficiency and productivity, adding:”Innovation is not only technical, but rather a way to empower people through technology.”
In order to foresee the future, His Highness called for the establishment of a basic platform that works on building an interactive environment to coordinate all stakeholder efforts, discuss priorities and foster cooperation in the Arab region.
The Prince called to administer surveys of the geographical, economic and social context, in a bid to discuss the long-sought pan-Arb integration.
The event saw the participation of officials and businesspeople from Jordan, Palestine and the Arab world countries.
