Digital work as a fast-track to smart cities

In line with the global shift towards digitalisation, an increasing number of industries are opting for hybrid work arrangements for the first time, with digital transformation becoming a core focus for many sectors. The need to rapidly digitise operations has, in several ways, accelerated the move toward smart cities; i.e. areas where traditional networks and services are made more efficient with the use of digital and telecommunications in order to improve citizen quality of life.

Setting the scene for solo travel in Jordan

Travelling alone, dubbed “solo travelling” across the blogosphere, has taken the tourism industry by storm with more and more people eager to venture into the unknown in search of meaning and purpose. The experience, increasingly popular among millennials and generation Z, provides an exhilarating mix of adventure, disconnection, empowerment, and self-development.

  • Leather products and footwear are amongst the top ten exports of the Palestinian economy. Albeit traditional, the sector has great potential to grow and compete worldwide. Its #SMEs can make giant strides towards global expansion if supported with the needed creativity, skill sets, and resources, and the @creactive_project will provide just that. 
Funded by the EU under the @enicbcmed, the project will boost the competitiveness of traditional SMEs by enabling them to produce creative designs and cope with the evolving dynamics of the global market.

  • We are proud to announce a new partnership with the @nlinjo as we launch 'Corporate Entrepreneurship Responsibility Alliance' (CERA) today. 
The new project aims at encouraging larger Jordanian corporates to shift their sourcing from global to local, and make Jordanian #MSMEs part of their #supplychains. 
At the same time, #CERA will build the capabilities of local MSMEs to boost their performance and competitiveness locally and internationally. This intervention comes as part of LI's priorities to create more jobs and improve economic well being in #Jordan.
