The UAE prime min­is­ter has en­cour­aged com­mu­ni­ties, busi­nesses and uni­ver­si­ties to come up with ideas that could lead to in­no­va­tion in so­ci­ety. HH Sheikh Mo­hammed bin Rashid Al Mak­toum, also UAE Vice Pres­i­dent and Ruler of Dubai, was speak­ing as the coun­try marks UAE In­no­va­tion Week. This week dozens of events will be hosted by a range of busi­nesses, gov­ern­ment bod­ies and char­i­ties aimed at find­ing ef­fi­cien­cies and tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ments. Sheikh Mo­hammed said: “His­tory has taught us that ad­vanced civil­i­sa­tions were built on the ef­forts of their sons, who had de­vised in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions for all chal­lenges. “Those civil­i­sa­tions that stopped work­ing, learn­ing and striv­ing for the fu­ture col­lapsed, and were for­got­ten by his­tory.” He said the gov­ern­ment sec­tor has changed in how it works day-to-day, adding: “We want to em­power the com­mu­nity to of­fer in­no­va­tive ideas and ini­tia­tives that ben­e­fit so­ci­ety and the UAE gov­ern­ment will be ready to em­brace these ideas and turn them into re­al­ity.”
