In his tweet, he reiterated the pledge he had made on May 13, 2020, to come out with a more flexible government. "We had promised to make changes to the UAE government by merging ministries and changing authorities so as to make it more flexible, adaptable to changes and quicker," he said.

On May 13, the UAE Vice-President had announced he would make changes to the government as part of the country's post-Covid-19 strategy.

He had said the country needs a "more agile, flexible and speedy government". "We need a flexible government to deal with the changes and new national priorities. The world will not be the same after Covid-19," he had tweeted then.

He had made this announcement as a three-day virtual government meeting to prepare for a post-Covid-19 future ended. The meeting brought together over 100 ministers, government officials, economists and experts who brainstormed the future of six major sectors: Health, education, economy, food security, society and government.

Sheikh Mohammed had earlier said that new teams are required to "work faster, more thoroughly and more responsively". "Preparing for post-Covid-19 is preparing for a new future that no one predicted a few months ago," he had said.
