In May 2022, the Emirate created a Metaverse Task Force with the idea of ​​promoting the creation of a local economy based on the Metaverse.

The emirate finally formulated its Metaverse strategy in July last year and expected the sector to contribute $4 billion to its economy by 2030, attract 4,000 more companies and create 40,000 new jobs in the sector by 2025.
