The Future Government Leaders Programme in the Arab World, organised in partnership with the Arab Administrative Development Organization (ARADO), a specialised organisation of the Arab League, aims to prepare influential leaders capable of improving lives and designing the future to serve the Arab nation.

The meeting with Arab leaders, ministers and government officials was held on the sidelines of the Arab Government Administration Forum, which was organised by the UAE government in partnership with the ARADO as part of the WGS 2023.

A total of 22 ministers responsible for civil service and administrative development, who participated in The Arab Government Administration Forum, witnessed the launch of the programme.

Ahmed Aboul Gheit, the Secretary General of the Arab League, said: “We are proud to launch a new phase of strategic partnership and cooperation with the UAE, which has always established its Arab and international presence in supporting development, and government efficiency, and serving as a main engine for shaping the future.”

“The Future Government Leaders Programme in the Arab World is an innovative initiative presented by the UAE and the Arab League to prepare the next generation of government leaders, and ensure the readiness of Arab human resources and government systems to tackle future challenges, and invest in its opportunities,” added Aboul Gheit.

Building capacities and preparing exceptional leaders

The Future Government Leaders Programme in the Arab World aims to equip young influential leaders with skills, knowledge, and capabilities through 50 hours of training in several vital fields.
