DSO showcases Silicon Park Project
First Dubai smart city project that is being constructed at a total cost of AED1.3 billion
THE Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA), the regulatory body for Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO), the integrated free zone technology park, is at the GITEX Technology Week 2017, to promote the Silicon Park Project.
The DSOA is participating at GITEX to highlight the Silicon Park project, the first smart city project in Dubai that is being constructed across an area of 150,000 square metres at a total cost of AED1.3 billion.
Engineer Muammar Al Katheeri, Executive Vice President of Engineering and Smart City Unit, says: "GITEX Technology Week has gained much significance in recent years against the backdrop of massive technological transformations taking place globally. All sectors are increasingly relying on advanced technologies to operate their businesses. This in the long haul is anticipated to impact the employment market and create new jobs while rendering some of the more conventional jobs redundant."
Al Katheeri adds that: "Through our year-on-year participation at this high-visibility event, we not only get a valuable opportunity to track some of these of disruptive tech innovations, but also gain a platform to share our own smart solutions and initiatives at DSOA, as well as exchange ideas directly with the audience, decision makers, customers and tech enthusiasts."
He says that: "The UAE plays a vital role in shaping ideas for a new historical era that is led by technology. At DSOA, we are seeking to provide the suitable environment and infrastructure to support entrepreneurship and innovation, and develop technologies in line with the government's agenda. We will continue to offer unique projects that will add to our success stories since the establishment of Dubai Silicon Oasis."
