A key enabler of Dubai Plan 2021, the strategy aims to establish the foundations of a sustainable dynamic economy based on research, knowledge, and development. This will help achieve the goal of making Dubai an investment destination, and will take the industrial sector into a new phase of growth that is compatible with the vision of the UAE to maximise the contributions of this sector in the post-oil era.

Chaired by Marwan Abdulaziz Janahi, executive director of Dubai Science Park, a member of Tecom Group, the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Equipment task force is expected to play an integral role in increasing investments in research and development and enhancing pharmaceutical infrastructure and manufacturing capabilities.

Janahi said: “The Dubai Industrial Strategy will reimagine Dubai’s role in the global economic landscape, and will enable the emirate’s transformation into a diversified and sustainable economy. I am honoured to collaborate with the various sector taskforces under the supervision of the Executive Council of Dubai.”

“This collaboration complements our work at Dubai Science Park and we have a great responsibility to enhance the competitiveness of the industrial sector and to achieve a unified vision allowing us to promote Dubai’s position as a global economic hub. The strategy, has clear objectives and initiatives to strengthen the competitive capabilities of the industrial sector and enhance industrial integration in Dubai,” he added.
