The Ministry of Economy of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has announced a new headquarters located where anyone in the world can visit it: the Metaverse.
According to Gulf News, The announcement was made on September 28 by the UAE Minister of Economy, Abdulla bin Touq Al Marri, during the Metaverse Assembly in Dubai, in which the minister stated that “this is not a proof of concept, but our third address”, before making a live visit to the virtual headquarters.
The headquarters will have a multi-storey building, and each of them will have a different purpose. Visitors will be able to pick up a ticket, which will cause a “customer happiness center employee” to join the metaverse and interact with the visitor.
The new headquarters will complement the Ministry’s two existing offices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, allowing the Ministry to make digital services a more important part of its operations, following the directives of the UAE leaders.
Visitors to the virtual office will be able to sign legally binding documents, which eliminates the need for signers to travel to one of their physical offices to provide their signature.
The venue also contains an auditorium that can facilitate virtual conferences and other events, as well as meeting rooms that allow users to share a screen.
The announcement follows the Dubai government’s Metaverse strategy, revealed on July 18, which aims to create 40,000 virtual jobs by 2030 and support the government’s vision of increasing the number of blockchain companies. up to five times the current number.
