The Jordanian capital Amman witnessed the launch of the One Million Jordanian Coders initiative under the patronage and in the presence of Crown Prince Al-Hussein bin Abdullah II as part of a strategic partnership in government modernization between the UAE and Jordan.
A high-level UAE delegation led by Mohammed bin Abdullah Al-Gergawi, minister of cabinet affairs and the future, attended the launch.
One Million Jordanian Coders seeks to train young Jordanians in coding to enable them to keep pace with the rapid developments in computer science and increase their competitiveness in the job market. The initiative aims to equip them with the necessary tools to serve the future needs of the country, spearhead the development of its digital economy and bridge the existing digital gap in the Arab world to make Jordan one of the most advanced countries in coding.
The initiative is inspired by the One Million Arab Coders initiative, launched by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, vice president and prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai.
This initiative aims to contribute to restoring the Arab civilization to its former greatness, elevate the status of the region and enhance its competitiveness on the global stage. It also seeks to stimulate innovation in young people, invest in their capabilities and empower them to take on an active role in building a knowledge-based economy.
