Rulers aim for Dubai to be 10 years ahead of other world cities
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai has called on all Dubai Government entities to embrace disruptive innovation as a fundamental mantra of their operations and to seek ways to incorporate its methodologies in all aspects of their work.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, said: “With its forward-thinking vision and initiatives, the UAE Government is setting an example for authorities all around the world as it moves from simply forecasting the future to actively working to shape it.”
The Dubai 10X project - the aim to have Dubai 10 years ahead of other world cities - challenges not just the government, but trade and logistics to keep pace as well.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum added: “Traditionally, governments are known all over the world to be resistant to change and bureaucratic organizations that are last to adopt disruptive innovation.
“The future is a collection of ideas and ambitions that are made and tested in experimental laboratories, and today’s initiative transforms Dubai into the world’s largest laboratory for the governments of the future.”
The vision of Dubai has already led to the upcoming Expo 2020 Dubai, when the world’s finest experts in trade and technology will descend on Dubai to witness the most advanced projects in the world.
