DUBAI – Two Dubai government offices will be restructured as part of the emirate’s efforts to transform itself into the world’s best city to live and work.

New restructuring plans for Dubai Municipality and Dubai Land Department were reviewed by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and First Deputy Chairman of the Dubai Council, and Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Finance and Second Deputy Chairman of the Dubai Council.

Sheikh Hamdan said the government departments are seeking to further streamline their operations and enhance their competitiveness.

“The comprehensive restructuring plan of Dubai Municipality and Dubai Land Department forms part of Dubai’s efforts to transform itself into the world’s best city to live and work and ensure its services and operations keep pace with the evolving global environment. It also seeks to raise Dubai’s ranking in various global indicators including environmental sustainability, food security, healthcare, and real estate investment,” Sheikh Hamdan said.

“The teams in the two departments have a great responsibility to lead and manage Dubai’s strategic projects. We will be closely following their progress and supporting them to achieve their objectives,” he added.

His brother, Sheikh Maktoum, said Dubai’s “new priorities and development plans [are] aimed at maintaining Dubai’s competitiveness.”

“To achieve our future aspirations, we need to be responsive to the needs of the community and enhance our productivity and quality,” Sheikh Maktoum said.

Under the new restructuring plan, Dubai Municipality seeks productive partnerships with the private sector and create new business opportunities worth Dh10 billion per year.

The restructuring plan also aims to reduce operational costs by 10 percent, and improve the quality of services by 20 percent, in addition to maximising the economic, tourism and commercial potential of the Municipality’s public assets.

For the Dubai Land Department, the restructuring plan seeks to improve the competitiveness of Dubai’s real estate sector and improve operational efficiency by 20 percent.

The plan has a key focus on making Dubai one of the world’s highest ranked cities in various real estate market indicators including safety and transparency in the coming years. ICA/Expat Media
