Abu Dhabi is to undergo a five-year makeover in a bid to spruce up its image, including enforcing the smoking ban, improvements to the landscape and outsourcing services to the private sector, leaders announced on Tuesday.

Abu Dhabi Municipality unveiled a five-year plan, outlining a list of measures to strengthen its "world class" image, which also included improvements to beaches and the urban landscape, the building of new roads and new and improved recycling and waste management services, reported UAE daily The National.

According to general manager Juma Al-Junaibi the body would become more "customer orientated", introducing a customer satisfaction rating system, and expanding its online services.
