Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has said the Arab world is facing a "management crisis".

Sheikh Mohammed, also UAE Vice President and Prime Minister, criticised the lack of quality in positions of management in a tweet in which he said the Arab world lacked decision-makers to help to build great nations.

"There is no energy crisis, or education crisis, or health crisis in our Arab region. We have a management crisis," he said in the Twitter post cited by The National.

"We are a people who own great resources and have great competencies but we lack ones who will manage the resources and qualifications to build a great nation," he added.

Last year, he also criticised the culture of mismanagement in parts of the Arab world, saying that his biggest challenge was finding non-narcissistic leaders, who put the success of others above their own.

He also took a dim view of the results of an employee satisfaction survey of government workers in the UAE, describing them as unacceptably low.
