HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum (Chairman, DACC)
In 2014, when HH Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and the Ruler of Dubai, unveiled the Dubai Strategic Plan 2021, he defined a new focal point for the emirate's governance: the happiness of its people.
The ultimate aim of the Government is to create and sustain an environment in which individuals can empower themselves to achieve all their legitimate aspirations, to the greater good of society.
Since 2006, the Government of Dubai has been working to build a city – Dubai South – that will lead the rest of the emirate in embodying the societal themes required for the facilitation of happiness. While the more visible features of Dubai South – such as the Al Maktoum International Airport – are
already in public view, the city is progressively planning and executing several beneficial initiatives that are designed to maximize the happiness of individuals.
Dubai South is the emirate's flagship urban project that embodies Dubai's vision to become a city of happiness.
The Government of Dubai is proud to unveil Dubai South as the 'City of You.'
HE Eng. Khalifa Al Zaffin (Exec. Chairman, DACC)
Over the decades, Dubai's leadership and its people have worked together to transform the emirate into one of the world's most beautiful places.
While features such as a vibrant economy, excellent roads, iconic buildings, and attractive recreational facilities are outstanding accomplishments for any city, they are simply the means to a higher end – to facilitate the happiness of people.
Dubai South is the emirate's flagship urban project that symbolizes Dubai's vision to become a city of happiness.
By bringing the individual and his legitimate needs to center stage, Dubai South is re-inventing the urban ecosystem. Living and working at Dubai South is calculated to be an inspirational and humane experience, which reduces or removes many of life's pressure points.
In such a setting, individuals will be empowered to reach their true potential. This will result in the creation of a more productive, prosperous and sustainable society, and a happier Dubai and UAE, overall.
