The Dubai Government Excellence Programme, in cooperation with the Global Innovation Management Institute (GIMI), announced the launch of the Global Council for Innovative Organisations, a global body of leading organisations in the field of innovation.

Established under the directives of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council, the new initiative was launched at the General Secretariat of The Executive Council.

The new Council seeks to promote knowledge exchange and promote the adoption of best practices in the implementation of innovation systems and frameworks.

Speaking on the occasion of the launch, Abdulla Mohammed Al Basti, Secretary General of The Executive Council and Chairman of the Dubai Government Excellence Programme, stressed that innovation plays a key role in realising the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, which is being translated into reality under the directives of Sheikh Hamdan. Dubai is committed to promoting an innovative work environment and developing mechanisms to further embed the values of innovation and creativity in all spheres of life, he emphasised.

"The future we aspire for requires us to continuously develop the necessary tools to maintain Dubai’s position as a leading global centre for innovation and instil the values of innovation not only in the public sector but across all sectors,” said Al Basti.

Dr. Hazza Alneaimi , General Coordinator of the Dubai Government Excellence Programme, said: “The establishment of the Global Council for Innovative Organisations validates the approach adopted by the Government of Dubai and its entities to actively improve government efficiency by introducing new innovative systems and processes. We believe that the establishment of the Council will create further learning opportunities for all entities committed to innovation.”
