Executive Summary


The Department of Economic Development, Dubai (DED) is pleased to partner with the Mohammed bin Rashid School of Government (MBRSG) to launch ‘The Great Economic Reset Programme’. The COVID19 pandemic has had a widespread impact across all spectrums of daily life, especially implications on the global economies will linger long after the pandemic has ended. As part of the ‘COVEXIT’ (COVID Exit) plan initiated by Dubai Economy, this project is our response to reshape the emirate’s economy and reset it towards a more agile, sustainable, resilient, and inclusive postpandemic future. As Dubai and the UAE looks to build the future for the next 50 years, governments need to think beyond coronavirus and move to the next normal, collaborating with local, regional and international experts to preserve the gains made by the UAE, refuel the economy and ensure continued prosperity for citizens and residents. We at DED believe in taking a triple helix approach in collaborating with public, private & academia stakeholders; and we have succeeded in producing some best solutions in the past. Globally, there is a recognition that this pandemic can be dealt better through extensive collaboration & cooperation between all stakeholders. Hence, we are engaging distinguished local & global experts to gather collective knowledge, to co-shape & propose solutions on the future of globalization, the future of education and the future of work. This series discussed various approaches Dubai & UAE can adopt to address the risks & capitalize opportunities of the new normal economy. I hope insights from the Virtual Global Policy Council will guide local & federal regulators, policymakers and the business community on the priority areas for further research and encourage exploration. This series does not limit itself to simply finding post-pandemic solutions but continues to provide networking opportunities for potential collaborations with global experts in enabling Dubai to face the ‘now, next and beyond COVID-19’ with confidence. Dubai Economy looks forward to leading more engagements with all stakeholders globally.
