Jordan is considered to be one of the more advanced countries in the region in this field. The internet penetration rate is growing and broadband is widely available, and Jordan has multiple internet service providers (ISPs). E-commerce facilities have been developed by various service providers. Use of the internet and e-mail is growing among Jordanians, but e-commerce is still in the developmental stages in the business community. The Jordanian government has started a major e-procurement initiative. This preparatory assistance project will provide the initial support required for the establishment of a Jordanian government e-procurement platform.
Jordan started to introduce electronic commerce legislation a few years ago, though there has yet to emerge a clear body of regulations and tax laws covering electronic commerce transactions. Legislation that allows for and regulates electronic signatures is still needed. Jordan neither actively regulates nor does it promote electronic trade. No tariffs, however, are imposed on electronic transactions.
