The Canadian Business Council (CBC) Abu Dhabi is pleased to support the live webinar The Dubai Advantage - Technology Sector Opportunities hosted by CBC Dubai and Northern Emirates in collaboration with Dubai Investment Development Agency (Dubai FDI).
The Middle East, Africa, and South Asia (MEASA) is the market of the future and Dubai is uniquely position at its nexus. Honoured to be partnering with Dubai FDI and the Australia Arab Chamber of Commerce and Industry we look forward to the final session in this series focusing on TECHNOLOGY.
Under Dubai's Smart City strategy, launched in 2014, authorities are embarking on more than 545 ongoing or planned initiatives designed to reshape the way residents and visitors alike experience the city. Key strategic goals include: transforming more than 1,100 essential government services into smart services carried out primarily online; introducing autonomous vehicles and smart transportation services; providing free, high-speed wi-fi across the emirate; and developing a data-driven economy that authorities estimate will generate an additional AED10.4 billion (US$2.83 billion) in GDP by 2021.
Technology touches every market today, be it health, logistics, food, finance, energy, construction, we could go on. It is also its own sector, and Dubai has made a point of being at the vanguard of technological development. From fintech to robotics to 3D printing and everything in between; Dubai has its sights set firmly on technology and innovation and is working towards transforming the emirate into a leading global Smart City.
