And 398 million paper documents will be less used, and 77 million working hours will be saved. Utilizing blockchain technology, by 2020, 50% of the UAE government will be used blockchain technology.

At present, the UAE's blockchain strategy has put forward a beautiful vision: by 2020, Dubai will become the first city in the country to be fully powered by blockchain. The strategy will consist of three strategic pillars: "government efficiency, industrial innovation, and international leadership".

On December 4th, the strategic cooperation agreement signed at the event site will better promote the cooperation between the two parties in the application of blockchain and jointly explore more solutions for the application of blockchain worldwide. After signing the agreement, the "Chaining Hainan" will provide solutions for Dubai blockchain applications, enabling some of the goals in the Dubai blockchain strategy to be achieved. Dubai, as a free trade port for the advanced development of blockchain applications, has accumulated practical experiences. These experiences can also be used as a reference for Hainan.

It will support the realization of global data circulation and data under the conditions of ensuring legal trading. It will support the seamless connection between the physical world and the digital world.

"There are some untrustworthy obstacles and gaps between countries, and blockchain technology emphasizes transparency, which will greatly reduce the mutual trust costs. In the future, international cooperation and data-based international trade will become more and more popular. It is necessary to build an international platform, "said Chen Bangdao, executive director of the Oxford (Hainan) Blockchain Research Institute.
