This was announced on Monday by Engineer Sultan Saeed al Mansouri, Minister of Development for Government Sector and CEO of the institute.

Al Mansouri said that the devised plan of the ADI for 2007-2008 is based on improving the performance and skills of the human resources in the public sector. “To improve the human resources skills, we deemed it proper to cancel some training programs and replace them with other more efficient programs. As a result, around 33 compulsory training programmes are set to be implemented in what is left of the second half of the year 2007” al Mansouri explained.

Al Mansouri also pointed out that foreign expertise would be brought into the UAE to further assist in these training programmes.

“We are guided by the initiative spirit to catch up with the developments around us. All the ministries, federal institutions and authorities must reconsider their strategies and activities in line with the distinguished government performance criteria and the strategy of the federal government. We are riding a boat of constant development so we must be directly involved in this development,” the minister said.
