AspNiroeveImnvbeesrt,m2e0n1t6s AspNiroeveImnvbeesrt,m20e1n6tsDUBAI // Dubai is to invest Dh4.5bn to make the emirate an innovation hub for global technology businesses andentrepreneurs. The landmark development in the initiative will be a massive new centre of communications and technologyfacilities – at 150,000 square metres, the size of 21 football pitches.The investment will also fund the expansion of DubaiDesign District to include an arts and creativity community, and “incubation centres” for innovative entrepreneurs in the freezones. The initiative is also aimed at encouraging small to medium start-ups at a time when their funding has been restrictedby some traditional bank lenders.It is thought most of the investment will be in developments close to the existing free zones of Dubai Internet City, DubaiMedia City and Knowledge Village, at the heart of Dubai’s premier commercial and residential zones. The plan was announcedat a ceremony on Monday to mark the 15th anniversary of DIC, the first non-industrial free zone, attended by SheikhMohammed bin Rashid, the Vice President and Ruler of Dubai.“Dubai Internet City has supported the transformation of our national economy into a knowledge economy,” SheikhMohammed said. “We have kept pace with great changes in technology. Now the time has come for Internet City to become acreator of change. “The future will belong to those who dare to take new paths. Recently we announced a national vision and astrategic plan on innovation, because this is how we will unlock added value for our nation. Today we announce a new bundleof initiatives that will make us the innovation capital for more than two billion people who live in the region around us.”Sheikh Mohammed also urged the private sector to contribute more to establishing the UAE as a destination and capital forinnovation.“Our innovation facilities will soon open their doors to every talented pioneer, whether they are from the UAE,from the Arab world, or any other nation around the globe,” he said.The aim is to attract the best minds to develop tools, create content, conduct research and develop applications. “We willconnect them with opportunity in the smartest innovation environment in the world,” he said. Mohammad Al Gergawi, theMinister for Cabinet Affairs and chairman of Dubai Holding, said DIC, funded originally by a $200m loan from HSBC, wasthe first of the knowledge-based free zones that have become the hallmark of the emirate.“Now those free zones employ70,000 people in 4,500 companies. It was a calculated risk at the time, but it has put Dubai and the UAE on the right path tobecoming a high-tech leader in the internet and communications, and it has been emulated by many other countries.”When the new developments are completed, nearly a million square metres of Dubai’s free zones will be dedicated toinnovation and incubation of new entrepreneurial concepts. Mr Al Gergawi said the new fund would be used to “supportyouth, for small business innovation and the creation of technical clusters” that would make Dubai an “innovation capital”.He said the vision to create DIC was Sheikh Mohammed’s. “He took me to the desert one day and showed me a place wherepeople had lived 3,500 years ago. He said they made an innovative economy, and so shall we.” 1081
