A Word by the Smart Dubai Officials
In the press release, Deputy CEO – Enterprise Solutions (EITC), Farid Faraidooni said that the Dubai blockchain agenda was “an integral strategy for the city’s future, and we are proud to be a key enabler for the digitization of the government.” He further added that by building on top of the BPaaS to support the country’s digital transformation, their blockchain endorsement by the Smart Dubai Office was an important step towards providing smart solutions that create efficiencies for government transactions leading up to 2021. “We believe this will augment not only the services that government entities provide, but it will also improve all citizens and residents’ smart city experiences as well as their everyday lives.”
