Vision & Mission
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has already illustrated to the world the enormous successes it has achieved within a short time-frame. Having emerged as an integral international hub, the UAE already has a strong position on the global stage. In order to keep this international presence, the UAE has the responsibility of creating long-term sustainability through economic diversification to ensure the security and stability for its community both now and in the future. One of the ways the UAE can maintain momentum economically is through investing in lucrative industries and engaging our nation’s youth to pursue competitive levels of education, encouraging these young minds to channel their creative thinking into real-world applications and to continually seek excellence in all of their endeavors. The information and communication technology (ICT) sector is among these promising industries in turn receiving significant attention from the UAE’s leadership, due to its influence all aspects of our contemporary life. The ICT industry is a sector that can thrive from knowledge centrism. For a country whose mission is to diversify its economy away from oil, knowledge capital is an important and lucrative investment with staying power. Our long-term agenda can be fulfilled through knowledge-intensive pursuits. Our work to this end, using the ICT Fund as a mean, is a testament to our commitment to serve our nation’s community with a long-term and enduring benefit.
