The Executive Council of Dubai has given the go-ahead for developing the Dubai Strategic Plan 2030, a roadmap for Dubai’s innovation-driven growth in the current decade. The new plan will create the framework for fresh projects and initiatives that will consolidate the city’s sustainable development and its global leadership in various sectors.
The task force entrusted with the development of the Dubai Strategic Plan 2030 held a workshop featuring representatives of different economic sectors and the broader society to gather their initial inputs and ideas. Building on the successful implementation of Dubai Plan 2021, the new plan will set a comprehensive agenda for progress until 2030. The plan will seek to consolidate Dubai’s stellar growth and global accomplishments over the last five decades, in addition to further improving its business environment and enhancing people’s happiness and prosperity.
The new strategic roadmap will be aligned with broader local and federal development plans. Goals for the Dubai Strategic Plan 2030 will be created with reference to global competitiveness indexes and benchmarks for cities. The plan will have the flexibility to incorporate new opportunities and changes that may arise over the coming years. Strong mechanisms for efficient implementation, monitoring, evaluation, and accountability will be built in.
The task force in charge of developing the Plan includes 44 representatives of government and semi-government entities, which will work as one team under the Government of Dubai. It will be supported by sub-committees featuring representatives of public and private entities and the non-profit sector, local and international experts, academia, students, and members of the public. The contributions of the diverse members of the task force will be vital to creating a comprehensive plan that will enhance Dubai’s global leadership and its status as the world’s best city to live and work in.
