Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Defense Minister Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum urged the Dubai e-government to play a leading role in creating greater opportunities for United Arab Emirates (UAE) nationals to be gainfully employed and also to equip the youth with the necessary skills that will help them to become effective contributors in bringing about the transformation of Dubai into a digital economy.
Dubai is an initiative to provide online services across the spectrum of corporate and community life in the emirate. It aim to integrate individually automated government departments under the single umbrella of the e-Government initiative, thus empowering employees across lines of businesses and levels of government, besides facilitating the lives of citizens and customers of the government.
Dubai has taken a lead in the region in deploying e-Government applications and is among the first few governments in the world to provide such integrated services to its citizens. The e-Government portal is a single contact point masking the complexity of the bureaucratic procedures, and guiding access to all services in the easiest possible way. — (menareport.com)
