The adoption of the most developed technology solutions and applications is a cornerstone of UAE's future vision, said UAE’s Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

He said during his visit to the 38th edition of GITEX Technology Week at the Dubai World Trade Center that technology is key to realizing UAE’s future vision to harness innovative solutions for the benefit of humanity.

This requires strengthening bridges of communication with the most important and leading developers of international technology communities and major IT companies as an extension of the country's development approach, Sheikh Mohammed added.

He explained that this approach is based on the principle of consolidating partnership with major international institutions and investors and creative thinkers in various fields.

UAE seeks to promote a constructive dialogue with international players on enhancing human progress across all sectors including information technology, which is critical to building our capabilities to face future challenges and achieve sustainable development, Sheikh Mohammed added.

He stressed that Dubai has cemented its position as a hub for technology developers from across the world and established partnerships with many players in the sector.

“This happens at a time when Dubai is strengthening its capabilities and developing its technology infrastructure as well as deploying the latest smart solutions to achieve its objective of becoming the future’s smart city.”
