Dubai's bold vision for the future sets the city apart as a fast-paced and forward looking metropolis.
UAE Centennial 2071
The UAE Centennial 2071 sets a course for the UAE to be the world’s leading country by 2071. It will invest and build around the four core aspects of education, economy, government development and community cohesion to foster an environment for exponential growth.
This is a highly ambitious plan, but one Dubai is conscientiously working towards achieving. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, said the project is a seed that the UAE has planted with the aim that future generations will reap the benefits.
A Hub for Business
The emirate today is a global hub for business and the future economy, and a magnet for the world’s brightest minds, who come here to launch initiatives, explore the challenges of the future and convert them into opportunities for sustainable development. Our government institutions have also become centres of excellence in foreseeing the future.
Dubai is deeply aware that innovation should be ingrained into the way the government thinks, operates and delivers services that empower both citizens and residents.
Dubai 10X is the embodiment of this spirit, seeking to establish ‘X Labs’ in every government entity in a bid to position Dubai 10 years ahead of other cities around the world in areas such as technology, government services, healthcare and education. The Dubai Plan 2021 seeks to bolster the city’s role as a global hub for business, underpinned by an aggressive economic diversification strategy, a future-proof innovation agenda and socio-economic development initiatives.
