Benefits of the project and how it impacts the environment

Smart City of Dubai

Within just decades Dubai has evolved from not much more than a strip of desert and sleepy fishing village into a bustling metropolis and one of the World’s most modern cities.

Dubai has recently won the right to host the World Expo 2020, with the theme of 'Connecting Minds, Creating the Future'.

“In today’s highly interconnected World, a renewed vision of progress and development based on shared purpose and commitment is key. While a single human mind, and individual country or a specific community is both unique and remarkable, it is by working collaboratively that we truly advance” - His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai

The Expo is expected to result in 277,000 new jobs in the UAE, an injection of up to $40 billion into the economy and an influx of over 25 million visitors.

Dubai has announced a Smart City initiative that will leverage the Internet of Everything to become one of the World’s most connected and sustainable cities with the Expo as the platform for unveiling this vision.
