Dubai has become the world's first government to turn 100% paperless, the Emirate's Crown Prince, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, has announced, pointing at savings of 1.3 billion Dirham ($350 million) and 14-million-man hours.
All internal, external transactions and procedures in the government of Dubai are now 100% digital and managed from a comprehensive digital government services platform. "The achievement of this target marks the beginning of a new stage in Dubai's journey to digitise life in all its aspects," said Sheikh Hamdan on Saturday. "This accomplishment also reinforces Dubai's status as a world-leading digital capital and its status as a role model in designing government operations and services that enhance customer happiness." He said the government also plans to implement advanced strategies to enhance digital life in Dubai over the next five decades.
