Dubai Department of Economic Development sets up private sector advisory councils
The Dubai Department of Economic Development (DED) has set up special advisory councils, representing the key constituents of the emirate's growing private sector, for new public policy recommendations.
The advisory councils will each consist of seven to 10 honorary members, who will be nominated for a year's term on a rotation basis. According to General Director of the DED, Mohamed Ali Alabbar, the initiative was aimed at ushering in an era of dynamic, transparent and open governance.
The boards will meet at least once a quarter to study the challenges and opportunities facing their business sectors, and will thereafter make public policy recommendations to address these needs. A special secretariat is being created at the DED to follow up and coordinate the implementation of the recommendations made by the boards. — (menareport.com)
