Nakhle Elhage, General Manager of Blinx, explained: “We’ve made remarkable strides since our brand name announcement. The launch of Blinx is not just about compelling content creation. It’s a digital media powerhouse that promotes storytelling excellence in a myriad of genres like entertainment, infotainment, news, business, lifestyle, sports, self-development, climate change, and more. Our Smart TV App also offers exclusive long-form content such as investigative journalism, talk shows, and live broadcasts”.

The MENA region currently has one of the highest youth unemployment rates in the world, at over 26%. Blinx already employs around 150 young professionals, helping to buck the negative trend while simultaneously offering a voice to the disaffected youth. “Content creators and creative storytellers are on a mission to shift perspectives,” Elhage said. “Not only are they talented and bold, but they also embody the youth’s energy, dynamism, and resourcefulness that is Blinx”.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities.
