Chairman's Message

Through this plan, Abu Dhabi plans to achieve a comprehensive goal that covers all aspects of life in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The Abu Dhabi plan requires us to intensify our efforts and cooperate effectively with the private and public sectors so that we can achieve our goals and values. We are the founding father of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
 
His guiding principles, God bless him, were distinguished by being valid for all time and place, since all he did was to improve the living standards of the people of this country without affecting their future and the future of their children after them.
 
These principles have become a reality with the Abu Dhabi Plan announced by the Government of Abu Dhabi under the wise leadership of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates, which seeks to achieve several objectives, an integrated, confident and secure society supported by an open and sustainable global economy.
 
In response to the objectives of the Abu Dhabi Plan, we worked in The Department of Urban Planning and Municipalities to launch our new official web site in its new and up-to-date solution as part of our quest for excellence in services and leadership in planning performance and to develop various aspects of our institutional work in line with the Abu Dhabi Plan , and in accordance with the best international standards for upgrading our eServices.
 
HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, continues his efforts to achieve the objectives of the Abu Dhabi Plan and services to accelerate economic and social growth in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
 
We are working in The Department of Urban Planning and Municipalities to ensure that Abu Dhabi is able to achieve comprehensive and integrated sustainability in order to ensure that it joins the global cities in this area through the overall strategic planning process, the preparation of general plans and the development of policies and regulations based on global best practices that take into account all aspects of sustainability.
 
We are proud of what The Department of Urban Planning and Municipalities has been able to achieve so far, and we are fully aware that the aspirations of our leadership are great and therefore a constant desire to achieve new levels of excellence with our keenness to respect our Arab culture and pride in the principles of the founders of our dear homeland.
