Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, launched on Monday the ‘Dubai Paperless Strategy’ during a visit to the Smart Dubai Office, SDO, headquarters in Dubai Design District, d3.
Sheikh Hamdan was accompanied by the Secretary-General of the Executive Council of Dubai, Abdulla Al Basti.
The new strategy falls in line with the vision of the His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to transform the emirate into a fully-fledged smart city.
“What we are witnessing today is another milestone in Dubai’s journey towards fully embracing smart technology,” said Sheikh Hamdan. “The Dubai Paperless Strategy embodies our leadership’s vision for a smart government that embraces advanced technologies to build a perfectly integrated paperless government framework, and an administration that sets solid plans and strategies to secure people’s happiness and develop their communities to meet the requirements of the cities of the future.”
“After 2021, no employee or customer of the Government of Dubai will need to print any paper document,” Sheikh Hamdan noted. “This reflects our holistic vision for our role as human beings, not only towards Dubai, but towards the world as a whole. The Dubai Paperless Strategy will eliminate over one billion papers annually used today in Dubai Government transactions.”
SDO Director-General, Dr. Aisha Bint Butti bin Bishr said, “We are currently on an ambitious mission to transform Dubai into the smartest and most successful city in the world - and in record time. As part of our efforts to ensure a safe and efficient experience that caters to the needs and expectations of Dubai’s residents and visitors, we, at Smart Dubai, are constantly introducing bold new projects and services to help us achieve this mission.”
