Mastercard, a leading technology company in the global payments industry, has established its Levant headquarters in Amman, Jordan, coming closer to partners in Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Palestine.
This follows the recent inauguration of its offices in Bahrain and Pakistan, said a statement.
By establishing its formal presence in three new markets in the Middle East and North Africa, Mastercard has reaffirmed its commitment to transforming the payments sector in the region, it said.
Located in the King Hussein Business Park in Amman, the new Amman office extends Mastercard’s footprint in the Middle East and North Africa to 14 offices with the regional headquarters located in Dubai, UAE.
“As one of Mastercard’s fastest growing markets globally, Middle East and North Africa occupies an important, strategic place in our wider growth plans globally. Over the last 30 years, we have made tremendous progress in expanding the reach of our industry-leading and innovative payments solutions in local markets and now through our extensive network of fourteen dedicated offices spread across all key markets, we are looking ahead to further reinforcing our leadership position through deeper alliances with our growing customer base and strengthening our resolve to shaping the cashless future of the payments landscape in this part of the world,” said Raghu Malhotra, president, Middle & Africa, Mastercard.
