The Middle Eastern society as a whole is an enthusiastic adopter of technology, digital media, online entertainment and social media. Jordan in particular has emerged as a regional tech start-up hub due to an ICT focused education system, low start up costs and business-friendly government. Its growing reputation is increasingly attracting international capital eager to tap into the region’s underserved growing online market.

Turkey also possesses a significant telecommunications market region due to its large population, which is characterised as young, increasingly urbanised and technically literate. Its developing economy has been shaped by the EU accession process.

Many countries now recognise the potential of applying ICT to improve both social and economic development. Kuwait, for example, has taken steps to develop a digital economy with the development of national level policies for e-health and e-government as well as a number of services now available online. Saudi Arabia received praise in 2013 from the World Bank which acknowledged the kingdom’s efforts in implementing business reforms such as electronic filing and new payment systems.
