“HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s approval of the Dubai Future Agenda and the Dubai Future Foundation’s AED 1 billion Future Investment Fund for innovation to shape the future of Dubai, translates his vision into reality. This will enhance Dubai’s position as an international platform for innovation and creativity, achieving the Dubai Innovation Strategy, which was launched by His Highness to transform Dubai into the most innovative city in the world. The fund will also contribute towards achieving the Dubai Plan 2021 to enhance the Emirate’s competitiveness, and ensure happiness and well-being for everyone,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority.
“The House of Wisdom will revive dialogue between the civilisations of the East and West. This will stand as a great example of the dialogue between other civilisations. The Dubai Future Foundation will motivate talent and enhance the UAE’s position as a great environment for talented people. Innovation is a key element needed to transform into a knowledge-based economy. HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has adopted a clear and futuristic vision to shape a new era, under the theme innovation and creation.”
“His Highness once said that, ‘The role of government is to create an environment in which people can achieve their dreams and ambitions, not to create an environment that government can control,’” added Al Tayer.
“His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum takes priority in supporting innovators. This will not only have a positive effect on Dubai and the UAE, but on the Arab World as a whole. His Highness continuously stresses that the UAE uses its experience and skills to help other countries achieve growth and prosperity,” concluded Al Tayer.
