The government sector in Dubai is collaborating with the private sector in various fields to benefit from its expertise, efficiency, and creativity, underscoring its significant role in adding greater value and providing a highly competitive advantage to all the developmental endeavors. This collaboration would also encourage investments within the emirate, providing an even better environment for both residency and investment. The Dubai Waste Management Centre, the world's largest and most modern facility for waste-to-energy conversion, is one such example of public-private sector collaboration.

Infrastructure projects are undeniably one of the primary foundations in promoting global investments since a developed society and a booming economy have a favorable impact on developing a competitive business and investment environment in the country. The Dubai Waste Management Centre comes as part of this vision, aiming to facilitate the introduction of numerous new services and development projects to promote economic prosperity. 

In line with the UAE’s vision of building a sustainable environment, the new Dubai Waste Management Centre has the efficiency to treat over 5,666 tons of solid municipal waste generated daily by the emirate. It can convert over 1.9 million tons of waste annually into renewable energy, supplying the local electrical grid with around 200 megawatts of clean energy.

Promoting public-private partnerships is undoubtedly one of the most significant cornerstones in diversifying and boosting the economy to shape its strong economic cycle. Such alliances would provide numerous new job opportunities across various sectors, all the while improving the quality of life and services, and attracting various investments from around the world, thereby fostering a strong and sustainable economic environment.
