Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has asked the committee to draft the Dubai Metaverse Strategy in the next two months in order to help Dubai strengthen its position as a global hub for emerging metaverse technology.

Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Finance, and Second Deputy Chairman of the Dubai Council, presided over a meeting of the Dubai Council, which was also attended by Dubai Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid also revealed that the Dubai Municipality has been reformed in various sectors to align with Dubai’s future vision and development ambitions.
