President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan was presented with a copy of book entitled: "Flashes of Inspiration" by the UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, at Al Rowda Palace.

Sheikh Khalifa thanked Sheikh Mohammed for issuing the book, expressing his pleasure with the publication, which illustrates ideas presented by Sheikh Mohammed at the Government Summit held in February 2013.

Introducing the book, Sheikh Khalifa said: "I have enjoyed reading the first draft of the book," noting that Sheikh Mohammed added to this book new ideas, views and topics not raised during his speech.

He added: "Our vision for Government Excellence and new generations of future governments, and the real role of any government in any society, matches and corresponds with the vision of my brother, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, my brothers Rulers of the Emirates, and with what we have learned from our founding fathers." The UAE President stressed that the function of government is to bring happiness to the community through services as penned by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid in his book.

He also expressed his satisfaction with the Government Summit, which gathered over 30 states to discuss excellence and delivery of services to people, noting that "We always seek to learn from experiences of others, and exchange expertise with other countries as well".

Sheikh Khalifa urged officials and Emirati youth to benefit from this book: "It is an opportunity to learn from a seasoned successful Arab leader. The book includes life experiences and ideas".

Following is the full text of speech of the UAE President: "I am pleased to present the new book of my brother His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, 'Flashes of Inspiration' which summarises a range of views and ideas put forward by Sheikh Mohammed during the Government Summit, held in February 2013.

I enjoyed the speech of Mohammed bin Rashid, and also enjoyed reading the first draft of the book, which has added new ideas and put forward views and topics not raised during the speech. And I wish everyone benefit from this book.

Our vision of excellence for the government and for new generations of future governments, and the role played by any government in any society, matches and corresponds with the vision of my brother, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid and with the visions of my brothers the Rulers of the Emirates, and with what we have learned from our founding fathers. The function of government is to achieve happiness and serve people and not to lord over them, as penned by my brother Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid.

I was pleased about the gathering of more than 30 countries in the UAE to discuss how best to achieve excellence and delivery of government services to citizens. We need to learn from the experiences of others, share knowledge with them and transfer our expertise to other countries.

Stability and development are reflected in the provision of decent living conditions to the people. This is the basis of our strategy in the UAE for more than 41 years.

Finally, I say to my young sons, brothers, government officials: this book in your hands affords a chance for you to learn from a seasoned successful Arab leader. With a rich experience, the book combines diverse life experiences, ideas and humane leadership experiences." His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, had earlier introduced his book: "Flashes of Inspiration". He noted that the book documents the most important ideas put forward during the Government Summit, which was held last February. The book also reflects Sheikh Mohammed's visions about some of the themes and experiences mentioned at the summit.

He described his book "as a quick illumination on a variety of topics in leadership and management", in addition to referencing some of the topics that were not accommodated by the summit due to the time factor. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
