The Dubai Crown Prince said that the Dubai government has “proven its full capability to work remotely” and that its precautionary measures paid off earlier than expected.
“None of the vital services were affected despite the precautionary measures and movement restrictions imposed,” he said.
“Our investments in the future paid off sooner than expected. It is reassuring to know we’re heading in the right direction. Now, we’re encouraged to redouble efforts, to accelerate our digital transformation for Dubai to become a model smart city, forever exceeding expectations,” Sheikh Hamdan said. ICA/Expat Media
