The brainstorming retreat of the UAE government has resulted in the approval of a revitalized National Agenda, which will serve as the country’s framework for the next half-century.
The new set of national agenda will be based on the concept of balance development. With its details yet to be released, the framework will steer the country to a new direction and generate new strategic projects, which are aimed at boosting the competitiveness of vital sectors and sustaining economic stability within the next 50 years.
Most of these new initiatives will be anchored on digital transformation.
