The UAE has announced the top five priorities for the government in the new year. This came as His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, chaired the first Cabinet meeting of 2023 on Monday.

Taking to Twitter, Sheikh Mohammed outlined the five priorities:


1. Establishing and consolidating the national identity.

2. Environment and sustainability.


3. Developing the educational system, vision, indicators and outputs.

4. Accelerating Emiratisation.

5. Expanding the UAE’s international economic partnerships.

As he chaired the Cabinet meeting at Qasr Al Watan Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed reviewed the outcomes of 2022. He noted that the UAE was among the best five countries in the world in 339 development, economic and social indicators last year.

“The Cabinet approved and developed more than 900 decisions, 22 government policies, 68 federal laws, 113 national regulations and 71 international agreements,” he said. “Last year, the government formed more than 120 teams from 110 federal and local entities and 50 private sector entities to work on updating more than 100 social, economic, educational and regulatory federal laws. Thanks to these teams, today we have become the most adaptable and responsive government in the world.”

Sheikh Mohammed affirmed that the UAE Cabinet will always be the engine of developing policies and strategies to achieve the vision of the President, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and the aspirations of the people of the UAE.
