Participants of the session, which aimed to formulate an ambitious new strategy aligned with the recently launched Ajman 2030 Vision, identified future challenges and requirements, analysed trends impacting government financial projects, established long-term goals and priorities, and developed an action plan to ensure innovative and distinctive financial performance and service delivery.




This session, attended by directors, managers, and staff from various departments, reflected the Department’s commitment to fostering innovation and forward-thinking.
