UAE strives to become a metaverse hub.
The UAE realises its potential as a global centre for the metaverse under the leadership of Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
Thus, as the Ruler of Dubai has envisioned the country’s all-digital economy, Dubai’s metaverse project will ensure the future growth of the Emirates’ gross domestic product (GDP).
This effort focuses primarily on cultivating local talent, innovation, and the government’s deployment of metaverse technologies. In addition, the strategy aims to expand blockchain-based firms nationwide and create many new job opportunities.
The United Arab Emirates had developed a blockchain-powered trade finance network in collaboration with telecoms giant Etisalat and a consortium of seven local banks. The UAE Trade Connect platform promises to simplify corporate processes by mitigating fraud and financial crime concerns.
Notably, Dubai’s objectives include extending its drive towards a digital economy and diversifying its revenue sources away from oil. The Dubai Metaverse Strategy, revealed to the public in September, is thus a push for the country’s digital economy.
