King launches initiative on IT at New York WEF

His Majesty King Abdullah launched an initiative to establish a cooperation framework among countries similar in size...

JORDAN (Star) - His Majesty King Abdullah, on Sunday 3 February, launched an initiative to establish a cooperation framework among countries similar in size, population profile, and outlook in the fields of information technology, communications, research and development.
The Information Technology Emerging Market (ITEM) initiative was announced by King Abdullah at a working session during the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum being held on Jan. 31-Feb. 4 in New York, a Royal Court statement said.

The ITEM framework proposes a practical mechanism designed to bridge the digital divide between North and South through successful examples that capitalise on the size, availability of human resources and adaptability of member states.

ITEM would also rely on a substantive role for the private sector in advancing its goals and objectives, the statement added. Representatives from Austria, Bahrain, Ireland, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Singapore, Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates attended the meeting with the King.

He invited representatives of interested countries to attend a meeting in Jordan in April to discuss and agree on the best practical approach to implement this concept.

ITEM would strive to adopt new economic strategies and innovative thinking so that technologies would become the vectors for positive change in economic, political and social contexts.

According to the statement, the initiative also seeks to establish cooperation among member countries in the fields of education, training and human resources development. Coordination in investment policies designed to harness competitive advantages in the member states is another of ITEM's goals, as well as initiating proactive solutions to traditional economic concerns through a transnational public-private sector partnership.
