Titled, ‘The UAE Government Strategy: Features Echoes,’ the study published by the Information Affairs Office of Deputy Prime Minister, describes the goals and objectives of the strategy.

The UAE government strategy derives its principles and aims from the prudent policy enshrined in the statement issued by the President, His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, on the 34th anniversary of the UAE. His statement contained the guiding principles of nation-building and development, the study says.

Shaikh Khalifa, along with his brothers, the Rulers of the Emirates, takes pride in great achievements of the country which have placed the nation in a high position among the world's nations, the study says.

It quotes Shaikh Khalifa as saying: "Today, we are on the threshold of a new phase aimed at enshrining the principles of law and the values of accountability, transparency, and equal opportunities. To achieve these goals, the new stage requires rebuilding, restructuring, and rehabilitating the government's existing systems and structures."

Shaikh Khalifa added, "We have already started to prepare for the empowerment stage, through introducing legislations and regulatory measures for the existing departments and institutions; improving production and services; and directing efforts to support and encourage the promising institutions, activities, and human cadres, with a view to preparing the enabling conditions for a conscious takeoff toward the horizons of the 21st century."

The book indicates that the march of development was launched by the founder of the nation, late Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and his brothers, late Shaikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, and late Shaikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
