Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum affirmed that innovation in governments will change the way of our thinking and open up new horizons for all government departments as well as strengthen the stature of the Government of the UAE, putting it at the forefront of the most innovative governments globally.

Sheikh Mohammed said, "I have full confidence that our employees will be able to transform their ideas into reality to draw the features of our future life together." Sheikh Mohammed made these remarks while inspecting the biggest government innovation platform supervised by the Mohammed bin Rashid Centre for Government Innovation which came as part of the 3rd edition of the Government Summit that started yesterday in Dubai under the patronage of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum under the logo "Shaping Future Governments." Sheikh Mohammed was accompanied by H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and H.H. Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai.

The platform, organised for the first time, enables the participants in the summit to familiarise themselves with the most important tools, means and special strategies to enhance innovation in the government departments. It also reflects the UAE's efforts in the field of launching a number of initiatives and events to implement the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan to announce 2015 as the year of Innovation. This also came within the national strategy of innovation launched by Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

The platform hosted a number of inspiring and short meetings featuring an elite of international and regional experts, along with participation by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) which showcased innovative models from various countries around the world such as Georgia, Haiti and Moldova.

The sessions also tackled a host of Emirati innovations such as the Smart Inspection System adopted by the Ministry of Labour which depends on a number of e-smart procedures that contribute to improving procedures and facilitate smart search and other services.

A number of representatives of government and private sectors, in addition to field experts, participated in the innovation platform which was aimed at finding innovative solutions for problems in each field.

Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation, Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development, Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister for Cabinet Affairs and President of the organising committee of the Government Summit, Lt.
