UNESCO adopts the proposal of the United Arab Emirates and declares October 20 as “International Codification Day”

In a tweet, Sheikh Mohammed stated: “In a historic global initiative, UNESCO has adopted an Emirati proposal to designate October 29 (which marks the launch of Dubai Internet City) as ‘International Coding Day’. Additionally, March 19 is now recognized as ‘International Digital Education Day.’”

“Programming has become a fundamental pillar of economic growth. Similarly, digital education stands as a crucial element to advance scientific knowledge. The UAE consistently positions itself as a central force in upholding and implementing the best tools and practices that serve the good of humanity,” Sheikh Mohammed added.

‏Recognizing the importance of coding, the UAE launched the ‘National Programmer Programme’ in 2021 to foster the growth of the UAE’s digital economy by designing a series of national initiatives to develop talents, expertise and innovative projects in coding .

The nation aims to attract and train 100,000 coders, establish 1,000 digital companies within five years and increase investment in startups from Dh1.5 billion to Dh4 billion.
