shaikh mohammed said: “the consolidation of the culture of social development is the most important indicator of the cultural progress and prosperity of nations; there is no doubt that this requires a work methodology in line with the requirements of the future to enable all community groups to be more effective in the community.” he stressed that man is the centre of attention and on him hopes are pinned and by him ambitions are achieved therefore strengthening the system of social services comes at the forefront of priorities and strategies of the national action.

he added that the family is the nucleus of society the secret of its success and the core of its cohesion and interdependence and the empowerment of emirati family and preparing the ingredients of decent life for all its members is a necessity so as to ensure the stability of society. he praised the efforts of productive families and their awareness of the importance of their role to be a productive factor and an active tributary in the development process highlighting the need to provide all forms of support to these families so as to continue their active role in community building.

shaikh mohammed indicated that man in the uae is not a number to be added but he is the most important in the process of community building and the child is the main element in this process. he stressed the importance of developing different abilities of children since their early years of childhood and promotion of communication and interaction between them on the one hand and their families and community on the other considering investment in early childhood is the state’s real investment.

shaikh mohammed also asserted that the attention the uae gives to promote children’s rights is inseparable from its civilised vision concerning human rights in general; it is a comprehensive and integrated vision which includes all segments of society men and women children and youth workers with disabilities and others. he added that this vision is not only restricted to one side without the other but it rather focuses on economic social and cultural aspects as its primary objective is the welfare of the uae citizens to enjoy developed living levels in accordance with the highest international standards.

he urged participants in the laboratory on the need to adopt creative ideas in the delivery of social services and work according to modern effective programmes that ensure stability of the emirati family and provide all its members with a decent life. he said: “these are your brothers and kinsfolk we want you to adopt innovation and creativity as an approach in your work and to compete among yourselves to deliver to them high-quality and ultra-fast effective results.”

“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.
