Ministry changes

Last year, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid put various ministries on notice to lift their game.

Then it was announced that 'mystery shoppers' would be used to
check their performance.

Today there is the annoucement of a cabinet re-shuffle. Some ministers have been moved, some have been replaced, new ministries formed, responsibilities of some departments have been moved...and we now have four female ministers.

WAM quotes Sheikh Mohammed as saying that :

...the overall objective of the cabinet reshuffle was enhancing government's efficiency, transparency and teamwork.

"We want a modern and effective cabinet with a greater consistency and abilities to improve functioning of the government as a whole and to accelerate development processes."

All the details are in the lead story in today's Gulf News, here.
