Sheikh Mohammed bin Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Crown Prince of Ras Al Khaimah and Chairman of Ras Al Khaimah Executive Council.

At the start of the meeting, Sheikh Saud stressed the necessity of continuing the emirate’s development process and preserving its gains to achieve sustainable development, and for the improved welfare and happiness of its citizens, as well as to create a better future for coming generations under an integrated framework, through the efforts of the federal government.

During the meeting, Sheikh Saud focussed on three main concerns, which are effective government organisation as a driver and catalyst for economic and social development, the need to adopt policies and development plans based on accurate statistics and forecasts, and the importance of teamwork and achieving consistency and coordination among all government agencies to create added value.

Sheikh Saud stressed that the main pillar of government excellence is the efficient management of human capital, attracting qualified Emirati human resources, and preparing and developing second and third leaders generations through programmes that match the best global practices.

Sheikh Saud also noted that a government that operates according to a planned strategy and rational organisation can deal with all potential challenges, while highlighting the importance of achieving prosperity and social stability through providing for the housing needs of families and ensuring their prosperity.
