Hamdan bin Mohammed visits Dubai Future Foundation
His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Dubai Future Foundation, has re-affirmed the words of Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who said that "the future is to be turned into reality today, not years from now."
The Crown Prince of Dubai was speaking during a visit to Dubai Future Foundation’s headquarters and the "Office of the Future", the world’s first 3D-printed office.
Sheikh Hamdan said: "The UAE is no stranger to forethought, accurate estimation of the variables, and correct identification of future challenges and opportunities. "History bears witness to our Founding Fathers’ foresight and wisdom in the decisions they’ve made, decisions whose benefits we continue to enjoy today.
"Looking to the future is our leadership’s permanent policy, they spare no effort in building a bright tomorrow for the nation’s coming generations." Accompanied by Mohammed Al Gergawi, Dubai Future Foundation’s Vice chairman and Managing director, Sheikh Hamdan met with the foundation team who gave a detailed presentation of the organisation’s projects one year after its establishment.
He went on to explain that the future "is the product of the hard work, strategies, options, and investments we make today. "Therefore, understanding the opportunities that the future holds has become a necessity and must be at the core of government functions if a nation is to remain globally competitive; 'business as usual' is no longer an option."
