(Abu Dhabi) – The UAE has taken long strides along the path of progress and gained a distinct international stature, thanks to the dedicated leadership provided by the founding fathers of the Union, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, affirmed.
“Today, we are following in their footsteps under the leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. We in the UAE enjoy an open, diverse cosmopolitan community. We are living in a rapidly changing world where our requirements and ambitions are frequently changing and this requires us to innovate in order to ensure that our country continues to enjoy its eminent standing and ranks among the best countries in the world,” HH said while chairing the Federal Cabinet meeting at the Presidential Palace where H.H. Lt. General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, and H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, were also present.
“We don’t only satisfy ourselves by launching strategies, but also follow up and implement these as expeditiously as possible,” Sheikh Mohammed stressed.
In this context, HH also directed the formation of the National Innovation Committee (NIC) which will bring under its umbrella a number of federal government entities to monitor the implementation of the National Innovation Strategy launched last month.
The committee will also coordinate with other public and private stakeholders to steer the innovation drive in the future.
At the same time, the Cabinet approved the formation of the NIC, mandated to implement the National Innovation Strategy, which aims to put the UAE among the most innovative nations in the world within seven years in the run up to the UAE’s Golden Jubilee in 2021.
