Smart city), which meets our prudent leadership vision towards making UAE one of the safest and most secure country of the world by 2021, which coincides with the 50th    anniversary of UAE establishment. Similarly, this vision coincides also with the designed strategy aiming at completing the infra-structure required to host Expo 2020, an event expected to impress the world of its achievements.
