Regardless of the limitations this test places on us, technology-assisted testing has given us the ability to continue our business and life.
Therefore, we believe that the role and definition of technology has developed significantly. At this year’s GITEX, we are delighted to share Dubai’s experience with the world in using technology to combat the epidemic and redesigning the city’s experience around it.
We have worked at Smart Dubai with our government and private sector partners to pioneer a smart city in the world, following the crisis (Covid 19), based on the pillars of achieving the happiness of its citizens and residents.
Al-Nasser added: “In line with the vision of the future and guided by our wise leadership, Dubai in particular and the UAE in general have come a long way in adopting and using advanced technologies and strengthening the emirate’s position as a global technology hub and a model smart city for the future “.
