Jordan ranks 50 on GTCI

Amman, Jordan has advanced to rank 50 on the Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) 2018, according to the European Institute of Business Administration (EIBA).

The institute classifies talent competitiveness based on such key areas as the capacity to attract, develop, leverage and retain talents and the ability of the states’ citizens to acquire technical and professional global skills and knowledge, according to the Jordan Strategy Forum. The forum said in a statement issued on Saturday that it filed a report on the GTCI, given the importance it attaches to the human capital in Jordan, and its main role in stimulating the Kingdom’s economic growth and progress.

It said Jordan leaped to rank 50 from the previous ranks of 70 in 2015 and 2016 and 58 in 2017, attributing the advance to three main areas in the GTCI: attracting, developing and retaining talent.
