The meeting is convening from 10th to 12th May, with the participation of ministers, general secretaries of executive councils, and officials from over 100 federal and local government agencies, as well as global experts, researchers and strategic planners in various areas of government work.

Sheikh Saif stressed that the UAE Government is able to achieve more successes thanks to the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid to ensure the readiness of national cadres before any crisis erupts, affirming that Sheikh Mohammed’s positivity has created an environment where team spirit is central, delivering the future and learning from past experience.

"The UAE, therefore, is able to deliver the future and be in a better position to respond to the challenges of the post-COVID-19 era," he added.

Sheikh Saif said that the UAE has joined the ranks of developed countries and is able to utilise the successful experience and outcome of the World Government Summit, a global platform for governments to learn and transfer their experiences.
