The future belongs to those who generate ideas.'

“We continue our efforts to invest in highly qualified legal professionals to fuel the drive towards excellence; and develop forward-looking legislation and effective legal opinions that support the ambitious development plans in line with the National Strategy for Innovation. The SLC focuses on building capacities and encouraging excellence, innovation, and creativity as the enablers for achieving the aspirations of the SLC to develop a futuristic legislative framework that supports the strategic goal of positioning Dubai as a city of the future, transforming it into the world’s largest laboratory for the governments of the future, and setting Dubai ten years ahead of other cities in the world, in line with the Dubai 10X initiative,” reaffirmed Al Zafain.
