Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum has launched 26 projects to be undertaken by 24 Dubai Government entities under the “Dubai 10X” initiative.

The Crown Prince said on Monday that the success of governments is determined by their ability and flexibility to re-invent themselves and upgrade their services to cater to the evolving needs of the community.

Government entities should use their resources and capabilities to meet the requirements of the community, he said.

“The UAE offers the world a practical model for developing innovative government service solutions and reorient operational systems and frameworks to enhance the happiness levels and improve the quality of life of the public,” he added.

Sheikh Hamdan further said: “We are proud of this innovative model which reflects the creative potential of our nation, and reiterates the UAE leadership’s commitment to invest resources in developing path-breaking government services that can enhance the lives of individuals and ensure a bright future for upcoming generations.”

“We are ushering in a new phase of development for government services by transforming a whole host of innovative ideas into reality. The projects we have launched will transform government operations and enhance their flexibility to adapt to changes and future needs in an accelerated time frame of 24 months.”

The Dubai X 10 initiative aims at enabling the government of Dubai to keep ahead the world in all sectors and to make Dubai the city of the future through today's application of what the cities of the world will implement in 10 years.

The adoption of these projects follows the establishment of a specialized committee of international experts and specialists in the study and review of over 160 ideas, which were received from 36 parties in under 365 day.

At least 26 projects submitted by 24 government agencies in Dubai will be put into effect and are concerned with reformulating the functions and roles of government agencies and bodies, enhancing their role in the service of society.
