Referring to Sheikh Hamdan’s leadership, the Executive Council says on its website: “(He) has taken a leading role in developing a governmental culture that is interactive, informative, engaging and, above all, responsive to the needs of residents and the wider community. This has been done through greater collaboration between different sectors of society and by working in partnership with various stakeholders.”

What’s the Executive Council?

The Executive Council is the main legislative government body in Dubai.

According to its website, the council “supervises and guides government policies and services so that they are underpinned by four main pillars: Integrated government services; government excellence; strategies, policies and corporate governance; and integrated government communications”.

“The council establishes the infrastructure to incubate ideas via think tanks, create task forces to enable implementation and adoption based on public value.”

Learning from the best

Born on November 14, 1982, Sheikh Hamdan graduated from the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst in the UK in 2001. He attended several specialised training courses in economy from London School of Economics and Dubai School of Government.

He then went on to acquire practical skills of leadership and public administration from his father, Sheikh Mohammed.

Having keenly followed Sheikh Mohammed and his leadership from the time he was the Crown Prince of Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan has made it his mission to implement his father’s ambitious developmental vision.

He often accompanies Sheikh Mohammed on high-profile visits and trips within and outside the UAE.
