United Arab Emirates will host the 18th UN Public Service Forum in October which coincides with celebrations of the UAE's Golden Jubilee.
The announcement of hosting this event in the UAE was made during the participation of Ohood bint Khalfan Al Roumi, Minister of State for Government Development and the Future, in a virtual meeting organized by the United Nations as part of UN Public Service Day celebrations recognizing public servants worldwide, under the theme: “Innovating the Future Public Service: New Government Models for a New Era to Reach the SDGs”.
UN Public Service global forum aims to support governments’ efforts around the world to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, as it explores opportunities for governments to deliver seamless digital services, embrace innovation, and find proactive solutions.
The Forum, which will be held in the UAE with the support of the Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA), will feature high-level ministerial meetings and welcome over 1,000 government leaders, ministers, and officials from around the world as they work together to address global challenges and developments, highlighting innovative policies and initiatives that elevate the impact of government work.
The UN Public Service Forum serves as a key global platform for exchanging knowledge and experience, where governments share best practices and benefit from global perspectives. Furthermore, the Forum will be held against the backdrop of Expo 2020 Dubai, where the focus is on ‘connecting minds, creating the future’.
Further, the Forum will honor the winners of the 2020 and 2021 UN Public Service Awards, a prestigious award in the field of public administration.
