Industry experts have warned that without strong intellectual property laws, Dubai will never be able to attract companies that will innovate and invest in technology research and development. At a conference organised by Dubai Silicon Oasis during Gitex, speakers said that the emirate has a huge opportunity to attract talent, but it must lay the foundations for that to happen. This includes not just strong intellectual property (IP) laws, but also an understanding of where it wants to sit in the technology eco lifecycle. Japan, it was pointed out, wanted to be at the leading edge of technology and so its investments concentrated on building that market. China, on the other hand, identified the manufacturing base and is now a leader in that field.
