UAE gears up to achieve 100 per cent target of National Agenda by 2021

“The efficiency and success of the UAE government is measured by its achievements and ability to secure its goals on time,” asserted Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai during a programme organised in Dubai.

He was evaluating the performance of the 36 executive teams formed by the government in October to implement the country's National Agenda which calls for holistic development in all the fields of Dubai.

These executive teams have been charged with working with 52 national indices over the course of the next four years, with the ultimate aim of reaching perfect scores within six vital sectors; healthcare, education, economy, environment and infrastructure, society, security and the judiciary.

During the programme, each executive team showcased their achievements in two-part presentations, which ran the entire gamut of their projects.

Ministers also signed a charter in which they pledged to do all that they can to support the executive teams and monitor their results.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed observed, “We directed to form teams from various government departments. These teams were instructed - along with all decision makers in the UAE - to intensify efforts in the upcoming period to achieve 100 per cent of the National Agenda's stated objectives by 2021.”

“We met today, six months since the inception of the teams, to examine their results and projects, and to evaluate their progress,” he added.
