The roadmap for implementing the Dubai Economic Agenda, ‘D33’, and its initial ten transformational projects have been reviewed by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, and HH Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of the UAE and Deputy Ruler of Dubai.
The Dubai Economic Agenda was introduced on January 4, by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai. The leaders stressed the significance of meeting the challenging $871 billion aim of D33 over the following ten years.
According to a statement from the Dubai Media Office, senior Dubai government officials met at The Museum of the Future to examine the idea. HH Sheikh Mohammed’s agenda statement, according to HH Sheikh Hamdan, furthered the growth of Dubai.
“We are ready to start implementing HH’s vision immediately. 2033 will mark 200 years since the foundation of Dubai. We aim to make Dubai a global role model that can help realize people’s dreams and offer them the world’s best standard of living,” he said.
According to Sheikh Maktoum, the D33 agenda’s principal ambitions are boosting global commerce and bringing in more foreign direct investment (FDI), improving Dubai’s financial standing, and encouraging youth participation in new economic sectors. “Over the next ten years, all industries—including logistical, digital, legal, financial, and infrastructure—will need to think creatively. Today, our goals are far higher than they were.”
Through novel methods, the agenda will promote sustainable economic growth. The plan also calls for integrating 65,000 young Emiratis into the labor market and the private sector and assisting 30 startups in emerging industries to grow into unicorns.
Initiatives to equip Emirati youth with future-ready skills will be on the agenda. To ensure that young Emiratis receive the best education possible without leaving the country, D33 wants to transform Dubai into a major international center for higher education.
Establishing the Dubai Green and Sustainable Industry Plan, boosting the export of eco-friendly products, and implementing a framework for trading carbon credits in the Dubai Financial Market are all part of the first phase of the D33 programs.
