UAE launches new entity to digitise life in Dubai

HH Sh. Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, took to Twitter to announce the establishment of the Dubai Digital Authority.

He noted that several existing government departments — namely, Dubai Smart Government, Dubai Smart Department, Dubai Data Corporation, Dubai Statistics Center, and Dubai Electronic Security Center — would now fall under the purview of this new entity.

Sheikh Mohammed also announced that Hamad Al Mansouri would be its new director.

The new authority is tasked with digitising life in Dubai, not just digitising Dubai government services, he said in his post.
