On this occasion, Engineer Al Gharaibeh said that the launching of knowledge stations stemmed from His Majesty’s vision to transform the Kingdom’s economy into a knowledge based and digital economy and offering services to reach all citizens across governorates. The Ministry is currently working in partnership with the private sector companies to find innovative and entrepreneurial ways as well as new dimensions to benefit from knowledge stations, to serve the local community and B2B business incubators and realize development for the residents of the governorates.

He praised Orange Jordan for supporting and adopting different governmental initiatives which aim to spread technological awareness in general and its continuous efforts to support numerous knowledge stations.

From his side Mr.  Marigny said that Orange Jordan through its active contribution in the digital transformation process in the Kingdom, launched the Orange Digital Centers umbrella previously, which comprises different cities across governorates, affirming that the company, through its digital umbrella will provide the stations with integrated telecom solutions, where the number of beneficiaries is expected to reach thousands, and refugees will be included in the training in cooperation with United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

He added that the Mafraq Knowledge Station was launched along with other stations in the Kingdom’s governorates, under the umbrella of Orange Digital Centers, in cooperation with Orange Jordan’s partners in this important project, stressing that this project stems from the company’s commitment to achieving His Majesty King Abdullah II’s vision to build and empower the community in terms of knowledge, the thing which falls in line with the company’s five-year corporate strategy, “Essentials 2020” which prioritizes bridging the digital divide and maximizing the benefits from the internet across the Kingdom.
