The UAE Cabinet met on 1 September, 2019.

The UAE Cabinet has formed a committee, chaired by HH Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, with several ministers and officials as members, to implement the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, issued to ministers, government officials, and people on the occasion of the Islamic New Year through his official Twitter account, titled ‘The Letter of the New Season’.

Legal and procedural frameworks will be drafted by the committee to implement Sheikh Mohammed’s directives, and the team will also submit a 100-day plan to the Dubai Ruler.

The 100-day plan will focus on improve government and private-sector performance in the UAE.

The committee was formed during a UAE Cabinet meeting on 1 September, 2019 at Al Watan Palace in Abu Dhabi, attended by HH Lt Gen Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, and HH Sheikh Mansour, UAE state news agency, Wam, reported. 

Commenting on the occasion, Sheikh Mohammed said: “Our message was delivered, and actions are more important than words. We will fulfil what we have promised. I reiterate my confidence in all ministers and leaders to assume their responsibilities to our people.

“Our dreams are in the skies, but our feet are on the ground. We are aware of the real challenges facing our key sectors and government to achieve prosperity and dignified lives for our citizens.

“That is what the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan taught us. I have trust in you, as you are capable of assuming this responsibility. We are monitoring the performance reports of officials, and everyone will be held accountable.”

Sheikh Mansour praised Sheikh Mohammed’s message to the UAE’s citizens and officials in key positions, adding: “The Federal Government has adopted a universal performance model based on the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed, which is a global model in government performance.”
