His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, expressed satisfaction with the “stream of innovative ideas” implemented by the Government of Dubai Media Office (GDMO). He emphasised on the need to keep pace with the rapid developments taking place in Dubai and the world.
Shaikh Mohammed made these comments on a visit to the GDMO on Wednesday.
“You should always seek to expand your understanding and knowledge by familiarising yourselves with the latest technology and media techniques, and implement them in line with our needs and our local environment. Learn lessons from others’ experiences and identify the best practices in this area until you reach the highest levels of efficiency,” Shaikh Mohammed said addressing the GDMO staff.
“I am proud of my media team and I wish you every success in your undertaking. I look forward to seeing innovative ideas and the highest level of excellence in your work in order to take our country to a leading position globally,” he said.
Shaikh Mohammed called on GDMO team members to unleash their ideas and adopt methods of creative thinking to come up with new solutions to contribute to reinforcing the message of the office.
Shaikh Mohammed stressed on the importance of self-development so as to cope with the dynamics of life.
He said such changes indicate the continuity of life, which is always in the state of renewal and change in various forms and moulds.
“The sky changes its clouds, rivers change their water and man, in turn, must be up-to-date with life’s changes — but it is important to always change for the better.”
Shaikh Mohammed praised the role of young employees at the media office, stressing his keenness to communicate with young citizens in various sectors and national institutions. He noted that the UAE spares no effort to support and promote young people and enable them to participate in the building of their homeland.
The GDMO staff appreciated Shaikh Mohammed’s kind gesture and expressed their gratitude.
They confirmed their commitment to his directives and adherence to the highest professional standards that ensure their compliance with their duties towards the homeland.
Shaikh Mohammed was accompanied by Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and Shaikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Deputy Ruler.
