Jordan has progressed by eight positions in the Government Artificial Intelligence (AI) Readiness Index compared to the year 2022.

According to a statement from the Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship on Tuesday, Jordan ranked 55th out of 193 countries for the current year, compared to the 63rd position out of 181 countries for the year 2022.

Jordan secured the fifth position among Arab countries, surpassing Bahrain, Egypt, Kuwait, and Tunisia, according to the report prepared by Oxford Insights.

The Government AI Readiness Index is based on measuring three key pillars: Government, Technology Sector, and Infrastructure.

It relies on 39 sub-indicators and 10 dimensions, including innovation capability, size, adaptability, digital capacity, governance, vision, data availability, infrastructure, human capital, and data representation.

With this achievement, Jordan has reached the first target of its strategic plan for Artificial Intelligence and its executive plan (2023 and 2027), approved by the Cabinet in October 2022.

Jordan has succeeded in achieving an improvement of over 20 percent in the global index of government readiness for artificial intelligence. This aligns with Jordan's vision to become a leading and competitive country in the field of artificial intelligence by creating a stimulating environment to attract AI companies and promote investment in this field.
