With regard to the U.A.E.’s new personal and commercial data law, Minister Al Olama thanked U.S. industry for the collaborative approach that has resulted in what will be an industry best standard in the broader Middle East region. 

H.E. also outlined more detail on the Projects of the 50 and described U.A.E. goals and objectives in making the country one of the most desirable places to live and work today and for the foreseeable future. 

Finally, the Minister highlighted U.A.E. relationships in the digital domain with other countries in the world as they pertain to innovation and collaboration. He encouraged U.S. companies to redouble their efforts to partner with the U.A.E. in creating solutions for the future.
