Dubai: His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has issued instructions to set up the world’s first government accelerators to achieve the National Agenda 2021.

The move came after Shaikh Mohammad chaired the extraordinary Cabinet meeting, which was held on Sunday, during which the Cabinet approved the plan to deliver National Agenda goals.

Shaikh Mohammad also gave directives to immediately set up joint work teams composed of federal, local and private sectors, and to seek assistance from highly qualified and experienced cadres to ensure quick results.

“The UAE, under the leadership of President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, is moving steadily and rapidly towards the future, based on clear visions aiming to ensure the happiness of its citizens and achieve global leadership,” Shaikh Mohammad said.

“The National Agenda 2021 sums up government work and shortens the goals, which we set to make our people happy. We will focus on these objectives as a priority and a goal of government work,” he added.

The national agenda aims to mobilise efforts and all potential to accelerate government work over the next period to reach 100 per cent of the goals by 2021.

“We issued instructions to set up the world’s first government accelerators to speed up work towards the realisation of the national agenda. We want to intensify efforts and accelerate our strides towards the future. Many challenges lie ahead, and time is the biggest challenge. There are only five years to go. We need to realise the objectives of our national agenda, to make our country one of the best in the world, and our people the happiest. This requires us to work as one team on both federal and local levels to ensure immediate and tangible results,” Shaikh Mohammad said.

He underlined the importance of the crucial role of leaders in encouraging work teams, adding that there will be no tolerance for procrastinators. “We need quick and tangible results in all fields that affect our people’s lives and make them happy,” Shaikh Mohammad emphasised.
