His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai is no stranger to words like pioneering, dynamic and revolutionary in his endeavour to transform UAE and Dubai - allowing it to carve a niche in the world order. A reckoning force known for his penchant to launch economically transformational landmark projects, Shaikh Mohammad recently approved the extension of the Dubai metro by 14.5 km, named ´Route 2020´ as it has World Expo 2020 venue as its destination. The route, which is also expected to connect with Etihad Rail while passing through Al Maktoum International Airport, will stretch the total network of Dubai Metro to 90 km. Stepping up his focus towards space as well, he has issued a resolution to establish the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) to make UAE the first Arab country to send a unmanned mission to Mars probe. The man behind the chrysalis of Dubai and UAE has made his mission to make the World Expo in Dubai a success, and we can expect more such landmark projects to be on the anvil. Be it space or earth, the ontogenesis of HH Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum knows no frontiers.
