Officials from the public and private sectors have stressed the importance of digital transformation to improve the quality and management of government performance in light of current challenges.
They made the remarks during the Tawasul Forum, which was launched by the Crown Prince Foundation (CPF) on Saturday, under the title "Administrative Reform in the Digital Age."
Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs and Minister of State for Modernization of the Public Sector Nasser Shraideh said that the public sector has played a "distinguished role" over the years, especially in the face of challenges that have occurred in the past two decades.
He added that the modernization of the public sector in accordance with the Economic Modernization Vision aims to re-write its role to support the private sector in modernizing the services provided to citizens through a digitization plan for all government services by 2025 and honing the digital skills of employees and top officials to prop up the digital transformation environment.
Shraidah pointed out that digitization is not enough to eliminate the phenomenon of sagging in some official institutions, pointing to the need to take into account the determinants set by the vision of economic modernization for the development of the public sector.
In turn, Head of the Economic and Social Council Musa Shteiwi said that digital transformation requires introducing new concepts to citizens in different age groups, cultures, and social and economic levels, pointing out that citizens still have fears about using technology.
For her part, Executive Director of the Jordanian Strategy Forum Nisreen Barakat called for finding ways to expand cooperation and coordination with the private sector with the aim of enhancing the performance of the government sector.
