About the Country

Technology has transformed every aspect of life in the UAE. The explosion of smartphone ownership in the UAE in the past 10 years, coupled with the country’s high internet penetration and government bodies’ readiness to embrace technology, has transformed nearly every aspect of life in the country, from how we communicate, to how we work, shop, get around, and pay our electricity bills. The UAE Vision 2021 aims to make the UAE among the best countries in the world by the Golden Jubilee of the Union. In order to translate the Vision into reality, its pillars have been mapped into six national priorities, which represent the key focus sectors of government action in the coming years.

In line with this vision, The World CIO 200 Summit 2020 will bring together the digital leaders who have gone the extra mile in living up to the expectations of their organization and thereby the nation. Join the country’s top CIOs at The World CIO Summit 2020 as we divulge industry pivotal areas through our focused keynotes, TECHTalk and expert panel discussions
