The top programmers in the world are going to get about 100,000 golden visas from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which are long-term residency options. The change will be undertaken as it works to become a hub for creativity development.
The nation wants to maximize the potential of the digital economy, which has grown twice as quickly as the global GDP over the last two decades, according to Omar Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy, and Remote Work Applications and Chairman of the Dubai Chamber of Digital Economy.
He said this during the 9th software development and artificial intelligence (AI) workshop of the Dubai Chamber of Digital Economy. A number of businessmen, entrepreneurs, and industry executives were there.
Al Olama goes on to say that the UAE is working with interested parties to develop a clear roadmap for bolstering the digital industry by ensuring that all government decisions encourage innovation and business friendliness.
Software developers have flocked to Dubai as a result of its desire to become a preferred place for worldwide digital investment. This is in line with the UAE’s intention to grant 100,000 golden visas to the best computer programmers globally.
By focusing on major sectors including energy, logistics, healthcare, tourism, and cybersecurity, the UAE intends to be a leading AI player by 2031. Within a decade, the “UAE Digital Economy Strategy” aims to boost the contribution of the digital economy to the UAE’s GDP to 19.4%.
