“our journey in the next stage in the field of government action in general and in the field of social services in particular necessitates that we work hard to get to the future before it comes to us and to draw to ourselves our paths and define our objectives in the light of a clear vision; and this requires us not to settle only on people’s expectations but rather to move beyond them to reach stronger and more effective performance levels to provide services in a manner that is easy and convenient to all dealers with the ministry and its offices in various parts of the country and to the same extent of efficiency speed and high professionalism so as to make these services easy and accessible” he added.
