Vision 2021 is a long-term development plan for the UAE launched by H. H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai in 2010. The UAE will celebrate the completion of the Vision in 2021, the UAE's Golden Jubilee, to celebrate the country's achievements since its formation as a federation.
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. The Agenda was the result of a series of workshops attended by over 300 officials from 90 federal and local government entities, participants from civil society organizations and the private sector and experts from academia and research institutions.
The agenda specifies a wide-ranging work program centred around 6 national priorities, as the key focus of government strategy in the coming years, and 52 National Key Performance Indicators (NKPIs) in various sectors. The six national priorities are:
* cohesive society and preserved identity
* safe public and fair judiciary
* competitive knowledge economy
* first-rate education system
* world-class healthcare
* sustainable environment and infrastructure
The National Key Performance Indicators (NKPIs) are long-term, measure performance outcomes in each of the national priorities and generally compare the UAE against global benchmarks. The national indicators are periodically monitored by Government leadership to ensure their targets are achieved by 2021.
Culture is one of the main sectors that will contribute to the delivery of Vision 2021 and the National Agenda. All cultural legislation, policies, and strategies have been aligned with the Vision 2021 and National Agenda.
