The UAE Ministry of Economy has announced the opening of a new headquarters located in the metaverse.
Abdulla bin Touq Al Marri, UAE Minister of Economy, during the Dubai Metaverse Assembly, said the virtual office is a "digital twin" of the ministry's offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, where people - through their avatars - can hold meetings, communicate and even sign legally binding agreements.
Al Jaziri, the avatar representing the ministry in the metaverse said:
Our digital address represents the full building of the ministry. Each floor can serve different purposes. A visitor will get a virtual ticket/ token and a notification will be sent to our customer happiness centre to let the visitor enter our office in metaverse.
To the existing two ministry offices located in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, a full-fledged one is being added in the metaverse. Services can now be accessed remotely without a physical office visit.
The new office also includes an auditorium where virtual conferences and other events can be held, as well as meeting rooms that allow users to share a screen.
Dubai launched the Metaverse Strategy, which aims to create 40,000 virtual jobs by 2030 and supports the government's vision of increasing the number of blockchain-based companies.
