The UAE’s leaders firmly believe that nothing is impossible and to prove this, Dubai’s Ruler has set up the world’s first Ministry of Possibilities.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE, announced the news on Twitter in English and Arabic.
“We launched the world’s first virtual ‘Ministry of Possibilities,’ a new government work system in the UAE. The virtual ministry, administered by the cabinet, will address pressing national portfolios and build future government systems,” His Highness tweeted.
The virtual ministry will have no specific minister but instead be overseen by a committee of Cabinet members. According to the government news agency, WAM, it will “incubate and develop radical solutions for the government’s most critical challenges.”
Also on the ‘to do’ list are creating an easy-to-use government procurement platform to help promote SMEs and improve government cost-effectiveness, speed up transactions and improve efficiency.
