UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan led the tributes to Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of his accession as ruler of the emirate of Dubai.

“My brother His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has completed ten years of ruling and leading a rational and sophisticated government, one of the most advanced and efficient governments in managing its services, with the testimony of prestigious international organisations,” Sheikh Khalifa was quoted as saying.

“During ten years, he also established transparent systems of government administration in performance and quality standards, smart services, and establishing programmes to prepare future generations of human cadres. In ten years of governance, my brother Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid managed to raise the standard of the government's competitiveness internationally by establishing institutions and work teams that focus on satisfying citizens and making them happy.”
