Sheikh Mohammed Promises ‘Smart’ Life for Dubai

(Dubai) – Dubai is racing against time to become a smart city whose residents will lead a happy and easy life, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, said while inaugurating the 33rd edition of the Gitex Technology Week.
“Dubai is on its way to transition to a fully smart city,” Sheikh Mohammed said, expressing confidence in the imminent transformation of the UAE into a smart country that would provide the maximum facilities to citizens and residents. The announcement came after an earlier one about the launch of a new project that would transform Dubai into the promised smart city.
The transformation would also see government agencies facilitate work processes and “reduce the burden of movement” between departments for service. After the inauguration, Sheikh Mohammed visited both government and private company stands. A significant number of agreements were signed between private firms and UAE government departments.
The first day of the event saw a record number of visitors who jam-packed the venue, all the way from the corridors to the 13 exhibition halls. The organisers are expecting more than 130,000 visitors from 150 countries during the five days of the exhibition.
