    UAE Vision 2021


    What is UAE vision 2021? Following the advancement that this region has been experiencing in past few years, it takes only a second to realize that UAE is up to something really big and in the years to come there will be some more records breaking events and projects. There is no limit or extend to the development and advancement that this region is achieving and one can only imagine that what will be next?


    I was reading newspaper when my eye caught a heading that made me read the whole article, since the heading was so captivating. The heading said, “EDUCATION: A KEY ENABLER TO DELIVER UAE VISION 2021”. Now this is something that we need to know and understand. This region has been heading towards a lot advancement and development in past few years but still it lacks behind in education. Education, the key of all advancements and development for all the developed nations has been ignored by Arabs in all this time but now they have realized that education is the key to their success and that they cannot compete with west until they excel in education and related areas.


    The role of technology has been tremendous in making the UAE’s vision of 2021 come alive as education has been redefined with the usage of technology especially with the inception on online programs such as online degree programs in Dubai. In this respect the first step by the Education ministry of UAE has been Smart Learning Centre. This centre has made the correct usage of technology in making education more widely acceptable in digital form.


    The rulers have now realize that in order to compete and to give competition to the outside globe, they need to make educational grounds more strong and more importance needs to be shed on human resources so that the region can harness the human capital and capitalize the telnet of its people to help compete with the rest of the world. The vision 2021 of UAE is to make the region an educational hub just as they have managed to make it a tourist hub.


    There are many reasons for this vision 2021 that requires education development in coming years and in making education the core element in the upcoming success of UAE. One of the main reasons has been a sudden rise and hype in the population of the region. The demand for increasing educational needs has arrived because of the rising population figures in this region.


    There have been some major changes in the educational environment thanks to the President your Highness and Vice President who have made some remarkable changes in the educational world. Few of these changes are; encouraging female participation in the educational institutes such as schools, colleges and universities. Moreover, there have been changes occurring from 1970’s but the changes that are occurring now days have no match and are incredible and will surely move the educational sector in UAE to new heights.
