About the Dubai 10x Initiative Project

This initiative requires thinking outside of the box to put Dubai 10 years ahead of other governments.

 “The future belongs to those who affect radical changes, not those who make minor, gradual improvements. The future will not be as patient with us as the present.” with these words Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of the board of trustees of the Dubai Future Foundation elated the government to give the initiative the number one priority and deal with it as a daily mission.

Sheikh Mohammed wants public entities to come up with at least three innovative ideas every year that could be implemented and it will be followed up by Sheikh Hamdan personally.

He also explains the importance that the future ideas and dreams must be manufactured in real laboratories – pointing to Dubai – and this initiative will convert Dubai to be the largest laboratory for future government experiences in the world.
