AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah met on Tuesday with a delegation, comprising executives of Japan’s Toshiba Corporation, specialised in manufacturing flash memory chips, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra. 

The visiting delegation is participating in the World Science Forum 2017, held at the shores of the Dead Sea. 

At the meeting, the company’s representatives expressed their business intention to extend training to promising and qualified Jordanians as they reviewed the Kingdom’s recourses, including human resources and favourable investment environment in the field of information and communications technology (ICT), transforming the country into a regional ICT hub. 

The meeting also addressed the Kingdom’s plans to expand the sector. Yesterday’s meeting was attended by the King’s Office Director Jaafar Hassan and Japan’s Ambassador to Jordan Shuichi Sakurai. 

The World Science Forum 2017, which will run through November 11, began on Monday under the title “Science for Peace”. The five-day event, which is the largest scientific event in the region, held at the King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre at the Dead Sea, seeks to address the challenges of growth, stability and world peace. The forum was first established in Hungary in 2003, in cooperation with UNESCO.
