    Gitex is a winner

    Thirty years of Gitex is a vivid testimony to the pole position that Dubai on the information highway and in the whole vista of technological advancement. Every year Gitex revalidates the importance attached to living and working on the cutting edge on seeing innovation and change as constant as well as barometers for progress.

    Regardless of the slowdown of the past two years this is one exhibition that only goes upwards and the 17 per cent increase on the footfalls indicates that the event and its supporters are on the right track and want to be part of the intellectual glamour that now has become such a major component in the technological field. No longer is that word associated only with corporate dustiness and efficiency but has percolated to the individual and his work ethos as well as domestic lifestyle.

    Perhaps, only the aviation industry can provide a competitive presence as far as rapid development is concerned. The hi-tech computer industry is literally the Usain Bolt of industrial advancement and has changed our whole way of life in these past thirty years. Think of the fact that the first Gitex with its toy computers and the first Internet access through an obsolete but quaint portal called Trumpet Winsock (whatever happened to it?) has ballooned to 93 times its original size. Against this backdrop it is only fitting that the UAE should triple its investment and presence thereby clearly signposting a new era and a fresh and vigorous jumpstart into the second decade of this century.

    The excitement that Gitex brings is driven by the exciting promotions offered by the top brands and it is the perfect opportunity to not just gape in awe at the new world on our fingertips but also upgrade one’s own facilities, be they at the workplace or at home. One factor that sometimes gets shadowed is that the UAE’s approach is also designed to give the young generation a magnificent introduction to the best the world has to offer and this is a very sensible attitude in that it gets them close to state-of-the-art thereby creating a huge pool of talent at home that can then be harnessed for creating fulltime careers.

    Indeed, one can say that Gitex is a sure winner every year if only we knew where Trumpet Windsock was blowing in the wind.

    What’s behind road deaths?

    Road accident fatalities in 2013 stood at 651. Mathematically speaking, a little less than two lives were lost every day. While this number is lesser than the 720 deaths in 2011, it is by no means acceptable.
