Dubai’s day successful without its service centres
Dubai’s day successful:
Dubai’s day successful without its service centres. The Department of Finance plays a key role towards achieving Dubai’s vision. ‘A Day without Service Centres’, aims to boost the use of government apps and e-services. It will be an annual event.
Services that must be done in person will still be available. The initiative was approved by the Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid on Saturday. The Dubai Department of Finance will coordinate the one-day closures.
The Dubai Department of Finance, DoF, has launched the initiative and started co-ordinating with all government entities in Dubai to close service centres across the emirate for a day, on 26th October, 2017. This comes as part of the vital role DOF plays as an established central entity concerned with collecting public revenues for the Dubai government.
Speaking about the project, Abdulrahman Saleh Al Saleh, Director-General of DoF, said, “Instantly, all government entities across the Dubai government have started co-operating to make the initiative a success. This first-of-a-kind initiative comes in with the supreme directions of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to make Dubai the world’s happiest and smartest city. It is also made possible thanks to the support of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, who is following up on the steps taken in this regard.
