4th UAE Public Policy Forum (UAE PPF 2020) Kicks Off Tomorrow



Dubai, February 15, 2020 – The fourth edition of the UAE Public Policy Forum (UAE PPF 2020) – organised by the Mohammed bin Rashid School of Government (MBRSG) – kicks off tomorrow (Monday) at the InterContinental Dubai – Festival City, where it is set to take place over the course of two days on February 17-18, 2020.

Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, this year’s edition is organised in collaboration with the Mohammed bin Rashid Centre for Government Innovation (MBRCGI) and bears the theme ‘Agile Government: Becoming Future-Proof’.

The Forum presents an ideal platform for exploring agile policymaking practices that are compatible with current economic, social, and environmental developments, as well as to lay the foundations for agile, future-ready governments, in accordance with a clear-cut vision for the future. The event brings together local and international experts and policy and decision makers to exchange visions and strategies, establish partnerships, enhance cooperation, and come up with solutions to address the challenges likely to face the governments of the future.

MBRSG’s Executive President His Excellency Ali Bin Sebaa Al Marri said: “The UAE Public Policy Forum has firmly established itself as a leading global platform over the past few years. This year’s edition boasts an extensive agenda of discussions, covering a myriad topics related to governments and their preparations to meet the challenges of the future.”

“Over the course of two days, experts, policymakers, and researchers will discuss the latest and most notable trends in the global efforts to forecast the future and outline pragmatic steps in preparation for it. This, in turn, helps implement the visions and directives of the UAE’s wise leadership to begin preparing for the next fifty years,” H.E. Al Marri added.

The UAE Public Policy Forum welcomes a host of high-profile attendees, most notably, Sheikha Shamma bint Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, Chief Executive Officer of Alliances for Global Sustainability; H.E. Abdulla bin Touq, Secretary General of the UAE Cabinet; H.E. Dr Saeed Al Matrooshi, CEO, Secretary General of the Ajman Executive Council; H.E.
