Shaikh Mohammed, who was presiding over the regular meeting of the federal cabinet, told the ministers to focus on plans of top priority. The cabinet meeting was dedicated to review a report on progress of the federal government strategy in its first year.

The council of ministers also entrusted the Ministry of Finance to establish the general debt bureau, after giving its nod for a federal bill on general debt. The legislation seeks to chalk out a framework for regulating, issuing and managing state general debt.

During the meeting, the ministers also explored proposed mechanisms to complete execution of other chapters of the government’s strategy in the next phase to achieve national goals.
