Two government departments in Dubai will be restructured to support the emirate’s growth and development plans.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, announced plans to restructure the Dubai Municipality and Land Department while chairing a Dubai Council meeting .

Dubai Municipality will be transformed into a “specialized institution” that adopts a “private sector mentality” to deliver high quality municipal services. The move aims to strengthen the authority’s ability to keep pace with global changes in the environment, climate change, circular economy and accelerating partnerships with the private sector.

The restructuring aims to create economic opportunities worth 10 billion dirhams within five years and reduce operating costs by 10%. It will also increase the quality of services by 20%, tweeted Sheikh Mohammed.

A comprehensive restructuring of the Lands Department aims to increase operational efficiency by 20%.

Sheikh Mohammed said: “We seek to transform Dubai into the best city in the world to live, work and invest. The constant development of government services is key to achieving this goal and ensuring that Dubai maintains high levels of global competitiveness. We are committed to further improving government operations in Dubai, so that we can provide the best possible environment for the economy to thrive and ensure the highest quality of life for citizens and residents. »


On the sidelines of the meeting, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council and First Deputy of the Dubai Council, and Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance and Second Deputy of the Council of Dubai, witnessed the signing of the first performance agreements for senior officials in Dubai.

The agreements include the main objectives for the specified period and the strategic projects that the directors of departments, entities and institutions are responsible for implementing.
