New plans

Mohammed Bin Rashid

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Somewhere I have read a line that “if you are loyal to your struggle, you are bound to achieve the goal.” The same thing I have felt about His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

His vision speaks louder than words. Recently he has stated that developing the digital economy is a major priority for the government as he has tweeted: “Today we launched the National Program for Coders in collaboration with Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Cisco, IBM, HPE, LinkedIn, Nvidia and Facebook, with the aim of training and attracting 100,000 coders, establishing 1,000 digital companies within 5 years and increasing investment in startups from Dhs1.5 billion to Dhs4 billion.”

The young minds and expertise are the main pillars for building a flourishing digital future and if it is based on science, knowledge, innovation and technology, one should expect the positive results (“Mohammed to invest Dhs4b in startups with new plans,” July 12, Gulf Today).

The UAE’s successful experience in the field of digital and technological transformation will be a key enabler in implementing its strategic plans and promoting the development march.

Sheikh Mohammed further said in his tweet, “The National Program for Coders is a new step within the UAE national programme to build our digital economy. The world is changing The pace of digital transformation is doubling, jobs are changing and survival will be for the most prepared, agile and well-equipped to keep pace with the global changes.”

Technology is the sum of techniques, skills, methods, and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation.

Technology can be the knowledge of techniques, processes, and the like, or it can be embedded in machines to allow for operation without detailed knowledge of their workings.
