With the aim to support students with education and research, promote business and creative activities as an integrated part of their higher education at universities, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, approved a new strategy to create economic and creative free zones.
This step has been taken to enable universities to not only graduate students but also create companies and employers. The inspiration behind this new strategy is to take necessary steps to implement the 50-year charter to ensure a sustained development that will turn Dubai into the best city in the world. This step is being considered as a revolutionary step to assist students to become young successful business leaders of the future.
This new strategy was prepared by the Dubai Future Foundation in collaboration with other government entities. The strategy is formed to promote trade as Dubai’s foundation is rooted in trade. The strategy is also focused on collaboration with top international research institutions and universities.
