The Executive Council of Dubai

The Executive Council of Dubai was formed by Law No. 3 for 2003 issued by the late Sheikh Maktoum Bin Rashid Al Maktoum to assist the Ruler in discharging his tasks and exercising his powers. The Council is chaired by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and consists of a number of heads of government entities.

The Council aims at making and updating a comprehensive strategic plan for Dubai, working out the annual budget of the Government of Dubai, maintaining the city’s security and order, providing public utilities and achieving economic and social progress in the city. It also drafts and oversees the implementation of the general policy of Dubai, takes the necessary measures for the enforcement of local and federal laws, approve draft laws and decrees before submission to the Ruler and establish government entities in the emirate and monitor the progress of work in them.
