Nakheel's Executive Chairman, Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, stated: "We are glad to be a part of this exclusive initiation as education is the foundation to ensuring further development and prosperity in the UAE's future. Dubai Education Council's launch last month proved to be a critical step in the road to realising Gen. Shaikh Mohammed's vision of instigating a distinguishing development in the sector so as to parallel the educational systems that exist in most of the world's developed countries."

Dubai Properties CEO Hashim Al Dabal said: "Improving the education system is an essential step towards accomplishing the set targets that not only underline UAE's achievements on an international level, but also ensure continued development."

DEC was launched in July 2005 under the directives of Dubai Crown Prince to enhance and develop the education sector as it is one of the vital keys to further success and prosperity in UAE's future.

DEC will be working on promoting the education sector on all levels in Dubai to world-class standards yet while preserving the local traditions, principles and cultural identity of the UAE. They will also be reinforcing the important role of institutions and schools in building the society and the economy on a strong foundation of knowledge. Alongside this DEC will launch new initiatives to upgrade the quality of education to international standards and to spread awareness of the importance of constantly improving education, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and other parties concerned with the development of this sector.
