Director General's Message
Our wise Leadership, through Vision 2030, has set challenging
targets that, ultimately, reflect the principles that were embedded
by our nation's founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed.
His foresight to plan for a future - a future that seemed almost
impossible just 45 years ago - has resulted in everything we see
Sheikh Zayed's guiding principles are timeless - everything he
did was aimed at improving the lives of his people without
compromising their future.
These principles were crystalised when the Emirate's Policy
Agenda was published. In line with the vision of our President -
His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan - for a confident,
secure society with a sustainable and globally competitive economy
- the Policy is supporting Abu Dhabi's evolution.
We are all witnessing the translation of policy into concrete
initiatives, programmes and buildings on the ground, under the
careful direction of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al
Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of the
Armed Forces and Chairman of the Executive Council.
The UPC is working tirelessly to support Abu Dhabi's future
growth and evolution into the sustainable Arab capital of the world
through the plans, policies, sustainability systems and approvals
processes to creates, implements and manages. We are proud of what
we have achieved so far, yet we constantly strive to reach new
heights of excellence by introducing new concepts, technologies and
innovative processes, always remaining respectful of our proud Arab
