Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, has stressed that the main reason behind the UAE's high government performance was the fact that the state treat its institutions as private, not government, bodies that compete with the private sector, embrace its mind-set and best practices and have their achievements assessed by the criteria of this sector.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid says "We even went further and started to measure customer satisfaction and rate our services centres using the internationally-recognised hotel star rating systems. The experiences proved to be successful where the performance of our institutions improved and we were able to achieve our goals."
