The exhibition will put on display the achievements of selected government agencies in Dubai and the region.” According to Al Nuaimi, Government performance in Dubai can serve as a role model not only at the regional level, but also internationally.

The previous edition was held under the patronage and presence of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Dubai local government departments are taking part in this annual event to raise awareness about new services, initiatives and programs, with the aim of delivering the message to the world that Dubai is a city of accomplishments.
