During the meeting Mr. Abu Osbeh stated that digital literacy has become an urgent necessity especially after the changes caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in terms of the use of technology in all life’s aspects including education, health, food, banking and others. He further reaffirmed the need of taking digital literacy into account to fight illiteracy in order to reach an integrated knowledge-based society.
