Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai has announced that there will be a structural change in the federal Government. This is the first time that the changes will be made since its foundation.
In an unprecedented three-hour social-media event during the World Government Summit, Sheikh Mohammed said ministries would be consolidated and new entities established in health and education.
“Governments must be flexible. We don’t need more ministries, but more ministers capable of dealing with change,” said Sheikh Mohammed. “We want a young and flexible government that will fulfil our youth’s aspirations and achieve our people’s ambitions.”
He continued, “We want a government that works on building the skills of its people, aside from providing services … a government focused on putting the happiness of citizens at the forefront of its priorities. We need a government with its purpose to build a virtuous society, a forgiving environment, close families, educated generations and equal economic opportunities for all.”
