The Prime Minister and Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, HH Shaikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, launched the Mohammad bin Rashid Smart Majlis platform, which allows all to participate in the process of taking Dubai to greater heights.
The Mohammad bin Rashid Smart Majlis (Council) is the largest integrated intelligent platform in Dubai, which includes 30 government agencies, aimed at receiving suggestions, observations, round-the-clock ideas from the public, and conduct smart brainstorming sessions with direct follow-up by Shaikh Mohammad.
Speaking about the launch of the Majlis, Shaikh Mohammad said that the doors were and will remain open, as a new channel for communication, and a new council, has been opened, which includes all government agencies open to receive feedback, suggestions and listen to the observations.
It is aimed at making Dubai, the world’s smartest and fastest developed city, with the help of residents, nationals, visitors and Dubai fans. The main aim is to offer an opportunity for every member of the community to provide ideas, attend council, debate and work hand-in-hand in the process of development, Shaikh Mohammad said.
The Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, said that the newly launched Majlis consist of three sections – the first allows Dubai residents and visitors and fans to contribute to the development of Dubai and improve its attractions through their innovative ideas.
The second provides the public an opportunity to receive feedback on defects, if any, in various facilities like beaches, parks, and roads by photographing such defects and specifying the geographical locations, thereby, enabling competent authorities to identify them and take necessary action in maintaining the good image of the city.
The third section involves brainstorming exercises about various issues raised by Shaikh Mohammad from time to time in the smart Majlis. The section enables the public to submit their views and interact.
Explaining the new launch further, Shaikh Mohammad said that the idea is to allow all members of the society to attend Majlis and present their ideas and comment, and work hand-in-hand to promote the development process, which should be accomplished with efforts of every individual. This is possible only if the traditional idea of Majlis is integrated with advanced technology.
The Smart Majlis can be accessed through the smart phone application MBRMajlis or through website www.MBRMajlis.ae. Community members can register on these platforms to present their ideas or comments by following a simple process.
