“DUBAI GOVERNMENT WILL ISSUE ITS LAST PAPER TRANSACTION IN 2021, WE’VE INSTRUCTED SMART DUBAI OFFICE TO OVERSEE THIS GOAL” - His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum during Smart Dubai’s Future Now Event, April 16 2017
As a fully paperless government, 100 % of internal and customer transactions will be digitized from 2021. That means government will no longer issue or ask for paper documents across all of its operations.
As part of this transition process, we will focus on implementing the necessary technology to enable paper-free transactions. We will also create an legal framework to address digital procedures and will overcome any cultural and customary barriers in the move away from paper.
By eliminating the 1 billion pieces of paper used by the government each year, we could save enough money to feed 4 million children, prevent 130,000 trees from being cut down, and save 40 hours of productivity to give people more time to spend doing what they love.
