Dubai Chamber improves in second edition of Dubai Innovation Index
The chamber launched the survey, which analyzed the top 28 global innovation cities, with the help of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).
“The index has succeeded in identifying areas where we need to improve upon in order to boost our competitiveness,” Buamim said. “By embracing innovative strategies and practices, the private sector can contribute greatly to Dubai’s vision to become one of the world’s most innovative cities by 2021.”
According to the index, Dubai’s private sector has started to embrace innovation and make positive strides in finding and retaining the talent need for innovation.
“The second edition of the Dubai Innovation Index comes at an interesting time for Dubai, the region, and the world,” Anil Khurana, partner at PWC, said. “Though the region and the world are going through significant economic uncertainty, and several sectors are badly hit, the role of innovation in Dubai and the world has kept its pace.”
