It also highlights the country’s efforts to create a flexible and sustainable knowledge economy that is future-oriented, emphasizes technology, innovation and digital transformation, and introduces its unique flexible business environment to global investors. These efforts fall in line with the Principles of the 50 and the UAE Centennial 2071 goals. Even after the Expo, we will continue to exert these efforts to strengthen the UAE's position by forging global alliances and building on its legacy.”
