Chairman’s Award for Government Innovation in an Emerging Market

Telecommunications Regulatory Commission – Jordan

The Award recognises the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission’s (TRC) willingness to engage positively with the mobile industry and its support for ideas to encourage continued and sustained investment in mobile broadband networks. With the support of the TRC, Jordan has made significant progress in the development of digital government services, such as e-health, e-education, tax and municipal services, among others. The important role of the TRC in regional capacity building initiatives is also highly commendable.
