The growth and development that Abu Dhabi have achieved in various fields is the outcome of serious hard work, and efforts exerted in various points and sectors. Based on our limitless ambition2s and relentless determination to pursue comprehensive development and growth, all of us should take the initiative and seek to be creative; excellence should be an inspiration for each one of us in all points.
It has become a necessity to greatly focus on boosting capabilities in order to maintain the achievements and move forward on the path of development. For this purpose, many policies, strategies and initiatives that guarantee the realization of our leadership›s vision for the future of our country have been set. Hence, Abu Dhabi Award for Excellence in Government Performance (ADAEP) has been introduced to instill the culture of excellence and administrative thinking development on both procedural and practical levels in order to give a single identity, under the title of efficiency and excellence, to the various institutions and entities working in Abu Dhabi Government.
We at Abu Dhabi Government, are seeking to make a quantum leap in corporate performance – through this Award – by working on employee capability development, qualification and training as well as taking advantage of the best local, regional and international practices. International experiences have proven that the availability of national awards for excellence stimulates the efforts and encourage a positive competitive environment among the government entities, which would be reflected on the performance development and enhancement in general. Therefore, ADAEP will create a tool to measure the adherence to the excellence criteria and requirements in all work aspects. On this basis, I invite all of the officials to effectively participate in the various events of ADAEP, in order to benefit from the programs and references they provide and work on applying the same on all work aspects which will be reflected on the quality and excellence of the services provided to the public to serve the higher interest of our beloved country.
In conclusion, I would like to emphasize that the devotion and dedication to work must be combined with the implementation of the latest international best practices and international excellence criteria to put United Arab Emirates in the leading position as our prudent leadership aspirations and wishes.
May Allah bestow success on you and guide you to the right path.
