Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid chairs virtual Cabinet meeting on Sunday.
"The government has worked remotely with efficiency, during the past months and today it is completing its works from the field after the return of the employees to work," said Sheikh Mohammed while chairing a virtual meeting of the UAE Cabinet, on the first day of government employees returning to work at their offices.
"We discussed in our meeting the procedures for the return of employees to their offices and the future mechanisms of government work. Health will remain a priority. We have instructed officials to provide all means of safety and prevention and create a healthy environment for the safety of all," Sheikh Mohammed added.
"UAE will go ahead and work teams are required to perform with a more flexible, comprehensive, and resilient approach to respond to rapidly daily changes," he affirmed.
"We say to everyone... life continues, achievements are ongoing, and experience has made us stronger, better and faster. The coming phase requires us to have a new spirit, with different thinking, to work faster and with greater flexibility," Sheikh Mohammed tweeted.
The Cabinet instructed the formation of teams to simplify and improve the government services, particularly the judicial services, to become fully integrated e-services through digital channels and smart devices. The teams will also study the community culture amid the impact of COVID-19 and identify values, ethics and behaviour of the UAE community, both citizens and residents, to deal with the crisis and publish a meaningful, positive media content.
Sheikh Mohammed said, "We want to achieve a qualitative leap in infrastructure, energy and transport fields as part of a vision that combines inclusiveness and integration and takes into account balance and sustainability and enhances our competitiveness regionally and globally."
Sheikh Mohammed said on Twitter, “Today, we concluded the meetings of the UAE government to prepare the state’s strategy after the COVID-19... We will review the structure and size of the government... We may merge ministries and we do not change bodies…. "

He noted, "Over the past 50 years, we started from the desert of our land to the desert of Mars. Our dreams will be even bigger for the next 50 years."
