Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai, approved a new plan to help shape the emirate's development for the rest of the decade.
The Dubai Strategic Plan 2030 aims to create a framework for innovative new projects to enhance the city's growing status on the global stage.
The master plan was given the green light at a meeting of Dubai's Executive Council, chaired by Sheikh Hamdan.
The blueprint for the future will be developed in line with the vision of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai.
A task force entrusted to oversee the project held a workshop featuring representatives from a number of economic sectors and other sections of society to help formulate ideas.
The think tank includes 44 representatives of government and semi-government bodies, which will work as one team under the Government of Dubai.
The new Strategic Plan will set out a comprehensive agenda for the emirate’s progress until 2030.
Earlier this month, Dubai unveiled a comprehensive plan that lays out the future of Dubai's sustainable urban development.
The Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan aims to transform the emirate and create a truly interconnected, people-led city that balances community with tourism and modernity with heritage and nature.
Over the next two decades, the emirate's population is expected to swell to 5.8 million, from 3.3 million today.
This plan aims to ensure Dubai continues to be the best city in the world.
