The Dubai 10X initiative has enabled government entities to embrace technology and future foresight, said Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Dubai Future Foundation (DFF).
Announcing the conclusion of the first phase of the initiative on Tuesday, Sheikh Hamdan said the emirate has developed a futuristic system to position itself as a leading city in introducing innovative projects and solutions that can positively transform society.
"Dubai 10X has achieved massive leaps in disruptive government services, empowering government employees with the skills to accelerate progress," he added.
Sheikh Hamdan said that by adapting innovative services and strategies to address rapid changes, Dubai 10X has disrupted the status quo. Agility, risk taking and the ability to embrace change have made Dubai one of the top cities in the world, he added.
During his visit to the DFF's headquarters in Emirates Towers, the Dubai Crown Prince stressed the importance of following up on the efforts made through the projects and the wider initiative to build on the quality of government work.
He was also accompanied by Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman of Emirates Group; Mohammad bin Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs and the Future; and several government officials, directors and senior corporate leaders from across the UAE.
"This initiative realises the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to establish Dubai as a pioneer among global cities in deploying emerging technologies to create advanced government services and a new model for government excellence," Sheikh Hamdan added.
He emphasised Dubai 10X's role in promoting collaboration, knowledge sharing and best practices to accelerate disruptive projects and solutions. He was briefed on the progress of projects approved for the second phase of Dubai 10X. He also viewed the updated version of an online platform dedicated to monitor the progress of diverse projects in the second phase.
"We are proud of the efforts of all those who contributed to the Dubai 10X initiative that was launched to harness the drive and will power of our local talents and to instil a culture of innovation in government work. We have great confidence in continuing to work as one team to achieve the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum for Dubai to become a leader among the world's cities," said Sheikh Hamdan.
