Bridging the Divide is proud to announce that it has formed a strategic alliance with The Arab ICT Organization (IJMA3), whereby it will seek to combine the resources of both organizations when possible so as to effect more productive relations between the people of the Middle East and those of the United States.
IJMA3 was created in 2004 as part of the IT Mentor Alliance, an initiative of USAID’s Global Development Alliance. IJMA3 is an international, non-governmental non-profit organization consisting of a consortium of 19 national ICT society and association members from 14 countries across the Middle East and North Africa. As the regional voice of the ICT industry, IJMA3 is dedicated to advocating policies that advance the industry’s growth and development; facilitating international trade and investment in ICT products and services, and; harnessing ICT toward the fulfillment of critical regional development challenges. IJMA3 is a member of – and the regional representative for – the World IT and Services Alliance (WITSA), an international body representing the interests of the ICT industry globally.
