Dubai becomes 1st ever govt to implement 100% paperless strategy.

In a major step towards sustainability, Dubai crown prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum on Saturday announced that Dubai has implemented the 100% paperless strategy. Pointing at savings of 1.3 billion Dirham ($350 million) and 14 million man hours, the prince noted that the Emirati state is the first in the world to undertake such a bold move.

As per the initiative, all internal and external transactions in the government of Dubai will now be 100% digital and managed from a comprehensive online service platform, Dubai Media Office announced on December 11.

With the Dubai Paperless Strategy, launched in 2012, no employee or customer of the government would need to print documents, unless they prefer to. All printing works will be done at service or typing centers specifically employed to do so.

As per the new announcement, cited by Gulf Business, the Paperless Strategy has been implemented in five consecutive phases. Each of the phases has been enlisted a separate group of Dubai government entities. By the end of the fifth phase, around 45 Emirati govt. entities are capable of providing more than 1,800 digital services and 10,500 key transactions.
