Vision 2021 is a long-term plan that aims to make the UAE one of the best countries in the world by the year 2021 when the UAE would celebrate the Golden Jubilee of its formation as a federation. H. H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, launched 'Vision 2021' in 2010, during a Cabinet meeting.
The achievement of Vision 2021 is based on four pillars. They are:
- United in responsibility: An ambitious and confident nation grounded in its heritage
- United in destiny: A strong union bonded by a common destiny
- United in knowledge: A Competitive Economy Driven by Knowledgeable and Innovative Emiratis
- United in prosperity: A nurturing and sustainable environment for quality living
In 2014, Sheikh Mohammed launched a seven-year National Agenda leading to Vision 2021. The National Agenda identifies six national priorities as the key focus of government strategy in the coming years. Read more on the UAE National Agenda.
