The UAE aims to increase productivity and develop innovative products, boost production by 30 per cent and increase the economy by DKK 25 billion ($ 6.8 billion) by 2031.

Mahmoud El Banna, head of Nokia's digital industry in the Middle East and Africa, said: "Nokia is at the forefront of helping businesses achieve their business goals by improving operational efficiency while gaining more control over their infrastructure."

The global brand’s strategy has been aligned with the UAE government’s Vision 2021 initiative to maximize the use of technology to build a more sustainable and progressive world. Nokia unveiled innovative private wireless solutions and a number of pioneering Industry 4.0 applications at Gitex 2021 to help companies accelerate digitization to increase efficiency and productivity in a sustainable way.

El Banna explained: “We are enabling industries on their way to industry 4.0 by setting them up to build digital infrastructure and a wide range of new industry applications that automate operations today, save costs and ensure they work properly. safer environment. So be it on the energy side, including utilities, oil and gas, mining, government and smart cities, as well as the manufacturing industry, all of which are beginning to transform their operations today by building local infrastructure."

Nokia will focus on oil, gas and utility transformations that are moving at an exponential pace to deploy digital infrastructure to provide automation and use cases for IR 4.0. The company also sees very strong demand for “cities and smart communities”.

El Banna said: "We are seeing Saudis build new cities on the shores of the Red Sea, which are state-of-the-art cities, green cities in terms of energy, sustainable and really open up new opportunities for citizens to go and live there."

The Gulf countries are regularly at the forefront of innovation and are recognized worldwide for their vision, comprehensive long-term planning and achievements. A good example of this is Dubai Vision 2040, which is further evidence of the 2040 Urban Master Plan, which focuses on improving people’s happiness and quality of life, and strengthening Dubai as a global destination for citizens, residents and visitors over the next 20 years.
