Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government Signs MoU with Jordanian Ministry of Public Sector Development and Jordanian Institute of Public Administration
Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government (MBRSG), a research and teaching institution focusing on public policy in the Arab world, today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Jordanian Ministry of Public Sector Development and Jordanian Institute of Public Administration, a provider of technical support and training programs for human resources development in Jordan’s public sector.
The agreement was signed at MBRSG’s headquarters in Dubai by Dr Khulayf Al-Khawaldah, Jordanian Minister of Public Sector Development, and Dr Ali Sebaa Al Marri, Executive President, Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government.
The aim of the agreement is to strengthen bilateral cooperation between the UAE and Jordan in crucial areas of public sector development, and building national capacities in future leaders. The agreement will specifically see the two sides collaborate in the planning and designing of public policy, exchanging experiences in the development of education programs and training, and sharing best practices.
Dr Khulayf Al-Khawaldah, Jordanian Minister of Public Sector Development, said: “This agreement further bolsters the strong relations between Jordan and the UAE and strengthens cooperation in a vital area like public administration development. We look forward to sharing expertise and best practices in governance with MBRSG, which has a wealth of knowledge and experience in capacity building and developing human capital.”
Dr Ali Sebaa Al Marri, Executive President, MBRSG, said: “In our ongoing efforts to build public sector capacities and enhance the system of governance, we aim to collaborate with similar institutions in the region. We are confident that cooperation between MBRSG and the Jordanian Ministry of Public Sector Development will positively impact capacity building in both countries and eventually improve the caliber of our leaders of tomorrow.”
The MoU is in line with MBRSG’s efforts to share best practices and lessons learnt in addition to introducing and promoting the UAE’s model in government administration. A model that has earned the country a number one ranking in government efficiency in the World Competitiveness Report 2014, published by the Swiss-based International Institute for Management Development (IMD).
The Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government is committed to promoting good governance through enhancing the region’s capacity for effective public policy. The school uses a four-pronged approach, which includes applied research in public policy and management, academic programs in public policy and administration, executive education programs and knowledge forums for scholars and policy makers.
