Shahla Abdul Razak, Deputy CEO of DSOA, said: "Integrating policies and legislations that regulate the process of building sustainable smart cities, qualified digital technology specialists, and public-private partnerships are vital to the success of future smart cities.

"With Silicon Park, we have leveraged these very elements via cutting-edge, smart solutions to ensure a game-changing impact on energy and sustainability, lifestyle, sporting activities, mobility and transportation, business offerings and operations.

"With the enabling environment available to entrepreneurs in the communications, IoT, automation, AI, and sustainability sectors, Silicon Park will become a role model for smart city projects in the region. It will also contribute to achieving the Smart Dubai vision, and enhance Dubai's and the wider UAE's rankings on global innovation, competitiveness, and entrepreneurship indices."
