Dubai’s Department of Finance recently announced its official “Finance Strategy for 2026”, which ties in with the Dubai Strategy 2030 project, an ambitious plan to elevate Dubai as a global platform for knowledge-based, sustainable, and innovation-focused businesses.
The director of the Department of Finance’s Strategy & Corporate Performance Division, Jasim Mohamad Al Zarooni, noted that the plan is based on the vision of “Global leadership and innovative financial sustainability”, centered around six ambitious objectives that were originally laid out in the Smart Dubai 2021 roadmap, with a plan to achieve financial sustainability and a fair and efficient distribution of resources within the emirate.
Here are the six strategic objectives in brief:
A Smart, Liveable & Resilient City
With improved connectedness, simplified and sustainable living, plus all of the critical infrastructure to boost efficiency and promote resilience.
A Globally Competitive Economy Powered By Disruptive Technologies
Pioneering new rules of economic development and engagement to transition to a circular economy that shares assets and resources, whilst building an inspired and highly productive workforce.
An Interconnected Society With Easily Accessible Social Services
Improve quality of life for both residents and visitors by embracing technology to streamline the emirate’s social, cultural, education, and healthcare experiences.
Smooth Transport, Driven By Autonomous & Shared Mobility Solutions
Pioneer smart innovative mobility solutions and automation for a seamless and safe transportation experience in the emirate and reduce commuting time.
A Clean Environment Enabled By Cutting-Edge ICT Innovations
Ensure the sustainability and quality of the emirate’s resources (water, air, energy, and land) for residents and visitors and digitally transform utilities, manufacturing, transportation, and waste treatment.
A Digital, Lean, And Connected Government
Eliminate the need to physically interact with government departments by providing 100% of eligible public services through digital channels and targeting full digital adoption.
The government aims to turn Dubai into the preferred manufacturing platform for global businesses, promoting energy-efficient and environmentally friendly manufacturing while fostering a culture of knowledge and innovation that could turn the emirate into a central hub for the global Islamic products market.
