The Dubai government will be fully restructured with the aim of making it more flexible, responsive and efficient.
The decision was announced during a meeting of the Dubai Council, which was chaired by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and the Ruler of Dubai.
As part of the changes, Dubai officials and department heads will sign three-year binding contracts that will define expected outcomes and work structure.
The Council also approved the 'Dubai International Trade Roadmap', which will include shipping and air routes connecting hundreds of additional cities. Dubai will be home to the world's main airport and ports.
There are also plans to raise the value of Dubai's foreign trade from AED 1.4 trillion to AED 2 trillion within the next five years.
