    The UAE's evolution from first foundations to the country that it is today as well as the vision it holds for the future is masterfully shaped by the Government’s determination to the innovation agenda coupled with the passion and active participation of the private sector in the UAE. This article looks into the innovation drivers, major milestones, accomplishments of this relatively young yet highly achieving country and provides insights others can gain from. The article also highlights considerations for all countries in the Middle East region to reflect on in terms of 1) acting fast to keep up with the pace required for innovation, 2) being flexible, adapting to change and learning from failure, 3) being open for the wisdom of the crowds as well as partnerships and collaborations, and finally 4) getting on and following through the implementation of the innovation agenda.
