Among the key changes are the introduction of "binding" three-year work contracts for all officials and directors of departments. During this period, outputs, rewards and accountability are specified.

This came as His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, chaired a meeting of the Dubai Council.

He said the new changes aim to make the Dubai Government more flexible, responsive and efficient.

Sheikh Mohammed tweeted: “Our message is this: Whoever does not move forward is in retreat. Whoever relies on past achievements loses his future. Dubai belongs to the future and its destiny is to be the vibrant global economic heart in the region, and what comes next is more beautiful if the will is there.”
