Jordan’s Sanad mobile application, which enables Jordanians to access digital government services, has been listed among the winners of the World Summit Awards (WSA) in the Government and Citizen Engagement category, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.
A team from the Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship participated in the competition, alongside more than 350 applicants from 70 countries.
A ministry statement issued on Monday noted that this is the first time the Sanad application has participated in an international competition. Work is under way to further develop the app as a one-stop shop for all government e-services, the statement noted.
The WSA is a global organization established in 2003 within the framework of the UN World Summit on the Information Society. It is an awards system that selects and promotes local digital innovation to improve society.
The organization showcases 40 winners per year through a democratic, inclusive, and highly competitive award system, in addition to five WSA Young Innovators Winners, according to the WSA website.
