Ministry of Information and Communications Technology


Established in April 2002, the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology [MoICT] is the governmental entity responsible for articulating policy in the areas of information technology, telecommunications, and post in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

In addition to developing, incubating, and supporting ICT initiatives at a national level, the Ministry’s mandate includes stimulating local and foreign technology investments as well as promoting awareness and adoption of ICT by all segments
by all segments of the population, in an all-inclusive approach.

The Ministry, through a dynamic public-private partnership process, works to create, promote, and drive new ICT opportunities in Jordan, which will facilitate the positioning of the Kingdom as a regional player in technology adoption and development, a key step to creating a knowledge-based economy.

The Ministry is currently articulating Jordan’s policies and strategies for liberalization of the telecommunications sector in both mobile and fixed line telephony, overseeing the creation of a more independent regulator and the formation of a combined national spectrum unit. These, as well as the formulation of national IT policies, are within its mandate of charting a strategic plan for the development of the ICT sector in Jordan.

Structured as a “think tank”, the Ministry’s work plan reflects its objective of creating the enabling legal, commercial, and regulatory environment receptive for technology introduction as a catalyst towards the larger socio-economic development of Jordan.
