A "particular focus" on the metaverse was emphasized by the Crown Prince, whose committee sought to advance technology and futurist sciences with new and innovative ideas.
Sheikh Hamdan has already approved four major Web3 strategies designed to encourage innovation and digital growth in Dubai. In this program, they study how the metaverse can be used for governmental functions, conduct research to determine the social advantages of the metaverse, and develop a strategy for implementing the metaverse services that they will present to the council for its approval.
During the next five years, Dubai Metaverse Strategy will boost the economy of the emirate by $4 billion and create 40,000 virtual jobs. The Dubai Government Media Office was the first to announce the news on the most recent phase of the plan.
