Dubai’s crown prince and chairman of its executive council, HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, has compared the emirate’s evolution to that of search engine giant Google in a series of Tweets having met with the firm’s co-founder Sergey Brin.

Sergey Brin is also president of Google’s parent company, Alphabet Inc.

In a series of tweets, Shaikh Hamdan explained how the history behind Google is similar to that of Dubai.

He tweeted, “Sergey and his friend Larry Page founded Google from a dorm room and today the company is worth over $600 billion. Their goal is to organise the world’s knowledge and make it available for all.”

“Sergey and Larry’s inspiring story is similar to Dubai’s story – We both share a desire to build the future. They created the future of knowledge; we  created a model city for the future of urbanism,” added Sheikh Hamdan.

Brin also met with Mohammad Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs and the Future, on his visit to the UAE.
