United Arab Emirates has taken leaps in digitalizing the country: government services, banking, traffic, public safety, immigration and other important areas of life. Country ranks now 10th in a global ranking of countries (Country-level digital competitiveness rankings worldwide as of 2021) but has ambitions to reach top spots in coming years.

Dubai in particular has an agenda to be the happiest city on earth with the help of modern technologies such as block chain, artificial intelligence, along with harnessing data science capabilities. The main driver for this transformation is Digital Dubai Authority while in the capital city Abu Dhabi the transformation is driven by Abu Dhabi Digital Authority.

United Arab Emirates has a great appetite for the latest technology and applications. The country is also financially equipped to realize the visions.

Business Finland has conducted a study of the United Arab Emirates ICT market earlier this year. Now we are happy to invite all interested Finnish ICT companies to participate an interactive webinar to share the findings and to open new business opportunities.
