DUBAI: Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, yesterday launched the “Government Policies Guide,” a comprehensive guide that outlines the policymaking process.

The Guide, which aims to support decision-making processes and achieve the objectives of Dubai Plan 2021, will help government entities in developing and implementing new policies and assessing their impact.

The Guide signals the start of a new approach in government policymaking based on enhancing the happiness and welfare of individuals and society.

Sheikh Hamdan said that the concept of happiness has become a source of pride for Emirati society. The government, he noted, seeks to make the achievement of happiness a key driver of its operations to ensure it becomes a reality in society.

He also said that the government supports this by developing policies and tools to enhance, measure and assess the execution of policies that promote happiness.

“Enhancing happiness is the government’s main role, and we want Dubai Government to come up with plans to ensure happiness in society through innovative policies, services and programmes. By ensuring that the achievement of happiness is a key goal at all stages of the policymaking process, we want to make sustainable happiness a reality in society. Happiness is the compass of Dubai Plan 2021, and we have been working over the last few years to measure it in different sections of society. It is the main indicator that will demonstrate the success of our plans,” Sheikh Hamdan said.

“We have issued directives to use the Government Policies Guide as the main reference for the government’s operations over the next phase. We also seek to make it a key tool for promoting and assessing happiness across the policymaking process. Using it, as part of an integrated government system that is aligned with the National Agenda and Dubai Plan 2021, will help us ensure greater happiness and welfare in society,” Sheikh Hamdan added. “Government policymaking requires innovation and creativity, and should give utmost priority to the needs of individuals and society.”
