Three months before marking its 50th year, a flurry of announcements has given way to a greater understanding of the UAE's road map for growth over the coming decades and plans to attract and support innovation.
On Sunday, the UAE's leadership unveiled Projects of the 50, a series of developmental and economic projects that will be rolled out throughout September.
Meanwhile, Abu Dhabi's Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI) unveiled a programme to train the UAE's government and business leaders in the field of AI. And Adnoc's drilling subsidiary announced plans to float 7.5 per cent of its shares on the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange, opening the company to international investors for the first time on a public market.
Co-hosts Mustafa Alrawi and Kelsey Warner explore the significance of these announcements, and the broader implications for the business community.
