The meeting started with the approval of the minutes of the previous meeting. Al Matroushi then presented the listed topics of the meeting’s current agenda, which include the emirate’s various affairs and its progress in achieving its vision to serve its citizens and residents.
The Executive Council also approved the organisational structure of the Central Human Resources Department and the strategic framework of its General Secretariat and the Department of Land and Real Estate Regulation.
It also discussed a policy to promote the safety of lives and protect properties from house fires, to achieve the vision of the wise leadership to make the UAE a leading country in the areas of security and safety.
Sheikh Ammar directed the Council to organise awareness campaigns for consultants, contractors, community members and property owners, to ensure their commitment to safety requirements and construction specifications.
The Council also assigned the Department of Municipality and Planning to monitor the technical and construction specifications for houses, to prevent and eliminate fires.
