The Dubai Museum of the Future Foundation and the Shenzhen Foundation for International Exchange and Cooperation have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to become strategic partners.

The agreement will help promote the exchange of talent and ideas between the two cities of Dubai and Shenzhen, and encourage the development of innovation in robotics, the Internet of Things, and other services directly related to the economy and people's lives.

"The Dubai Museum of the Future Foundation is keen to support innovation and entrepreneurship by building partnerships with innovative companies and cities, especially those who are active in design and innovation in sectors of strategic importance to the UAE, to promote its leading position as a regional and global centre for latest technologies, innovations and successful practices," said Saif Al Aleeli, CEO, Dubai Museum of the Future Foundation.

"We are looking forward to attracting innovative new start-ups and technological proof-of-concepts. Shenzhen is the leading centre for creative manufacturing in the world. Almost every single new innovative device and product on the market is made or designed in Shenzhen. This partnership gives us direct access to the most creative hardware ideas on the planet," Saif, added.

Wang Shi, Chairman of the Shenzhen Foundation, said, "Dubai is a global market integrator. We are deeply excited by the potential to combine Shenzhen's expertise and invention with Dubai's market access and connections."

Shenzhen in Southern China is one of the world's most creative manufacturing centres. Over the past ten years, it has become a powerhouse of creativity, innovation and design. The city is currently home to many of China's most innovative companies, including DJI Robotics, the maker of bestselling commercial drones, the AI and search giant, Baidu, and BGI, the world's largest genetic research facility. – Emirates News Agency, WAM –
