His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, has approved a new logo for the Dubai government.

After chairing the first meeting of the Executive Council of Dubai at Emirates Towers, Sheikh Hamdan made the decision, calling it a move to "revitalise Dubai’s iconic old emblem and adopting it as the new logo for the Government of Dubai".

It "symbolises the emirate's visionary leadership, transformative development journey, and evolution into a city of the future," he added.

The government’s identity goes beyond the logo, encompassing dedicated teams committed to serving and operating under a culture of efficiency and excellence, His Highness noted. “These teams are a source of great pride and represent the cornerstone of Dubai’s success as a leading global city and a leading destination for living and working."

His Highness directed the General Secretariat of The Executive Council of Dubai to oversee the immediate implementation of the new logo across Dubai’s Government entities. In addition to adopting the new logo, entities will retain their individual logos to reflect their distinctiveness.

The General Secretariat of the Executive Council of Dubai said government entities will be granted a six-month transition period to implement the new logo.

Sheikh Hamdan also approved the allocation of AED40 billion for the ‘Dubai Portfolio for Public-Private Partnership’ for 2024-2026. Overseen by the Department of Finance through the Dubai Digital Platforms, the portfolio aligns with the objectives outlined in the Dubai Economic Agenda, D33. These goals include increasing government spending to AED700 billion, elevating private sector investment in development projects to AED1 trillion, and raising foreign direct investment to AED650 billion by 2033.

His Highness also approved Dubai’s ‘Affordable Housing Policy’ and the ‘Dubai Sandbox’ project, designed to support 100 tech ventures in its initial phase.

Sheikh Hamdan praised the efforts of the former Council members in bolstering Dubai’s position on the global stage and extended a warm welcome to the new members. “The newly formed Executive Council of Dubai will act as the driving force and catalyst for constructive change for Dubai. It will play a pivotal role in ensuring sustainable development, enhancing people’s wellbeing, and strengthening Dubai's global standing,” His Highness said.
