“Hayat” App
 
Al Amiri underlined that “Hayat” App, which was launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has kept pace with the latest global standards, thanks to the country’s wise leadership that is keen to provide a healthy life for citizens and residents alike, and to achieve the ambitions of UAE to become a role model at the regional and global levels.
