Dubai is expanding day by day in technology whether in the private sector or the public. This city might be one of the fewest in the world, where the public sector is well developing more and faster than private sector businesses. This was recently supported through a new decision taken by the government to create a council which will implement the use of blockchains.
The initiative is part of the Dubai Future Councils initiative which was held and created by the Crown Prince of Dubai, chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, and chairman of DFF’s Board of Trustees, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The council will consist of 14 members and will conduct at least 4 meetings per year discuss the implementation of the blockchain technology in the country.
Dr Aisha Bint Butti Bin Bishr, which is the director general of Smart Dubaihas been announced as the head of The Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) responsible for the initiative. She commented on the move and her new position saying, “The Dubai Future Council for Blockchain offers a prominent platform to explore challenges and find innovative and proactive solutions to make sure Dubai is prepared for the future of vital sectors in the Blockchain era, and for the opportunities this technology provides, which we hope to harness in the near future and make Dubai the smartest city in the world and a regional and global Blockchain hub. We will be working to advance Dubai’s digital transition through a series of solutions and tools, most notable of which is Blockchain technology.”
