Sheikh Mohammed affirmed that the UAE Cabinet will always be the engine of developing policies and strategies to achieve the vision of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and the aspirations of the people of the UAE in building the best economic, social and developmental environment.


He added: “Today, I chaired the new year’s first meeting of the UAE Cabinet… We reviewed the outcomes of 2022, where the Cabinet has approved and developed more than 900 decisions, 22 government policies, 68 federal laws, 113 national regulations and 71 international agreements.”


He said: “In the previous year, the government formed more than 120 teams from 110 federal and local entities and 50 private sector entities to work on updating more than 100 social, economic, educational and regulatory federal laws… Thanks to these teams’ efforts, today we became the most adaptable and responsive government in the world.”


He noted that the UAE was among the best 5 countries in the world in 339 development, economic and social indicators in 2022.


The Cabinet also approved the National Strategy for Desertification, which includes 33 major initiatives and a national action agenda until the year 2030.
