As recently
, the Department of Economic Development (DED) in Dubai is
participating in the Dubai 10X initiative through the Dubai 3i project.

The Dubai
3i project aims to create a future regulatory framework for an innovative and
intelligent industrial sector. The initiative seeks to create an innovative
industry sector outside the traditional framework by: (1) providing live data
on industrial opportunities, (2) enabling industries to harness the latest
technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), big data and 3D printing,
and (3) transforming the industry to be less labour-intensive and more

to the official press release, the Dubai 3i initiative will be a “single point
of facilitation” providing complete support to industries and will seek to
establish Dubai as an incubator for all modern industries, small and medium
enterprises (SMEs), entrepreneurs and exporters.

Dubai 3i initiative aims to create a suitable future government
environment for new industries based on AI and smart industry.

Mr Sami
Al Qamzi, Director General of DED, said: "Dubai is racing ahead against
time in everything it offers. Through the Dubai 3i initiative, we have set
strategic and achievable objectives towards building a new and innovative
industrial sector for the next 10 years and we aim to create a future
government environment suitable for industries based on artificial intelligence
in the emirate rather than being a routine government department.

Department of Economic Development does not deal with challenges as challenges,
but we look at them as opportunities to communicate with our customers and find
suitable solutions for them. We adopt strategies and reform them as needed, and
we have created a work team led by Dubai Exports, which is one of our agencies,
to co-ordinate with the industrial sector, and address the current and future
needs of the sector in co-operation with local and federal agencies,” he added.

The Dubai 10X initiative aims to enable
government entities in the emirate to foresee global trends in all sectors and
position Dubai as the city of the future. Recent new initiatives aligned with the
Dubai 10X initiative include the “Police
without Policemen” project
, the
Human Genome Map
, Rammas
AI platform by the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority
and gateless
border using biometrics and blockchain
