The Ministry of Economy of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has revealed the establishment of a new office in the Metaverse, which anyone in the world can access.
According to Gulf News, the announcement came on September 28 during the Dubai Metaverse Assembly by the Minister of Economy Abdulla bin Touq Al Marri, who stated, "this is not a proof of concept; this one is our third address," before granting a live tour of the virtual headquarters.
The headquarters will consist of several stories. Each serves a particular purpose. Guests will be able to purchase a ticket, which will cause a customer happiness center employee to enter the Metaverse and socialize with the guest.
The new headquarters will supplement the ministry's two known offices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, enabling it to make digital services a larger part of its operations in response to UAE leadership directives.
Visitors to the simulated headquarters will be allowed to register legally binding documents, removing the need for signatories to travel to one of their physical locations.
The headquarters also includes an auditorium for virtual conferences and other events and meeting rooms where users can share a screen.
The announcement comes on the heels of the Dubai government's July 18 official statement of its Metaverse strategy, which seeks to create 40,000 virtual jobs by 2030 and assistance to the government's vision of expanding the number of blockchain industries to five times its current number.
