Speaking on the sidelines of the meeting of the GCC civil service ministers held at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi, Mr Rustmani said the move was in line with the directives and decisions of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

“The proposed amendments will allow all ministries to have complete power to directly carry out their future projects,” he added, pointing out that the amendments would include the financial and administrative aspects of government institutions. “Such a plan to amend the law of the civil service will help raise the rate of the projects’ accomplishments. This plan will also let government institutions be eligible to take suitable measures separately for any case,” noted Al Rustamani.

He confirmed that such amendments will lead to a great boom in the level of achievements in all government projects, whether from the financial angle or from the administrative one. He pointed out that the amendment of the law would not take a long time. “The process of amendment is not a long-term one, and the law will be put in place soon,” he said. After applying such amendments, the role of the civil service will be focused on monitoring so as to follow up the implementation of such procedures.
