Tomorrow starts here
Just as the Eiffel Tower rose out of Paris’s 1989 Exposition Universelle, Dubai’s Museum of the Future will mark the city’s achievement of hosting the World Expo 2020. As The National reported yesterday, the project has officially begun after Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid issued laws on Saturday clearing the way for its construction.
The idea to build the museum is proof that our country does not stop at dreams and aspirations, but takes swift action to realise them. The building, which will be a wonderful addition to the Dubai cityscape, also shows how serious this country is about nurturing ideas, innovations and visions, armed with science, imagination, ambition, confidence and dedication. As Sheikh Mohammed pointed out: “It’s the first step of many to come, marking the beginning of great achievements.”
So in the end, it’s not just about building a beautiful structure to house the Museum of the Future, but building the future itself.
