This year, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai implored ministers to spend more time working in the field.
In an agenda shared with UAE citizens, HH outlined a six-point plan with the first point clearly directed at officials and ministers stating they should be working in the field, not in conferences. ‘Working among citizens and making observations on the ground, not in conference halls and the corners of forums.’
And in a Tweet, HH Sheikh Mohammed clearly reveals where the inspiration comes from.
‘Sheikh Zayed built it from the field and in the field we will continue the journey’
