Dubai has become the first government in the world to be 100 percent paperless. This information was announced by the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The Crown Prince has announced that 1.3 billion dirhams (USD 350 million) and 14-million hours of human labor have been saved.
All transactions and procedures of the Dubai Government are managed 100 percent from the digital and comprehensive digital government services platform. Sheikh Hamdan said that it marked the beginning of a new phase in Dubai's journey to digitalize all aspects of life, focusing on innovation, creativity and the future. The Crown Prince said the achievement strengthens Dubai's position as a pioneer in designing government functions and services that will enhance the world's leading digital implementation and customer satisfaction.
The United States, the United Kingdom, Europe and Canada have unveiled plans to large-scale digitize government action, including government practices and the identities of citizens. However, it is noteworthy that septics have been the target of cyber attacks. The Dubai Crown Prince said the government plans to implement advanced strategies to create and enhance the digital life in Dubai over the next five decades. The new phase of Dubai’s digital journey is enabling future governments to meet the expectations of those living in the affluent smart city. He said it would empower them and give them renewed opportunities for prosperity, sustainable growth and happiness.
The Dubai Paperless Strategy was implemented in five successive phases, each implemented by different committees of the Dubai Government. By the end of the fifth phase, the digital functionality was fully implemented in all 45 government agencies. These companies provide over 1,800 digital services and over 10,500 key transactions.
As a result, paper consumption has fallen by more than 336 million. The Government of Dubai has decided to give residents an exceptional experience through the Dubai Now application, which allows access to more than 130 Smart City services in 12 key categories.
