'Schools.com' complemented the national drive led by Their Majesties King Abdullah II and Queen Rania to develop education and computerize schools as a first step on the road to transforming Jordan into an Information Technology and Communications hub in the region. The project's aimed to install computer labs in a number of schools across Jordan, particularly the schools that are not included in the Ministry of Education's current plan for school computerization

It says it was a pivate visit so we probably won't know. A family matter, perhaps? After all Prince Hashem's fiancee is a Saudi princess, maybe Abdullah went to formalise the engagements?!

By Gary Duncan, Economics Editor
A RISING star among the City’s fund managers, an adviser to Tony Blair, the creator of a style-setting magazine and the country’s most famous yachtswoman are among seven Britons named today as “young global leaders” who may help to shape the future of the nation. The Forum of Young Global Leaders is a &#163;1 million project set up by the World Economic Forum (WEF) — the group behind the annual Davos gathering of political and business figures — to find and bring together 1,111 high-flyers under 40 to tackle its problems..........

Chosen by a panel chaired by Queen Rania of Jordan, the group includes 60 business people, 30 from the political field and dozens of artists, academics and journalists.
