Envisioned by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, Ghadan 21 was launched to support and deliver the transformation of the emirateís economy, knowledge ecosystem, and communities from 2019 to 2021.
The government accelerator programme is driving the competitiveness and productivity of Abu Dhabiís economy, while making the emirate one of the most inclusive places in the world in which to visits, live, work, and do business.
Sheikh Khalid bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Member of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Office is leading efforts to implement the Ghadan 21 programme via reinforcing the Abu Dhabi Governmentís efforts to drive its initiatives forward, ensuring the sustained performance of active initiatives and formulating new action in response to the needs of the emirate and its inhabitants.

Additional legislative changes, policy development programmes, and deregulatory and incentive schemes are well underway to effect further changes that will have an increasingly tangible impact on doing business, pursuing knowledge and innovation, and quality of life across the emirate, benefitting Emirati nationals and expatriate residents in many facets, and reinforcing Abu Dhabiís stature as one of the regionís leading places to work, learn, and live.
