An elite group of Singapore officials recently traveled to Dubai under the auspices of Cheong Foong, consul general to the Republic of Singapore in Dubai, and welcomed by Ahmed Bin Meshar, SLC secretary general.
Dubai’s Supreme Legislation Committee (SLC) hosted the delegation to strengthen the two nations’ mutual goals of economic and legislative cooperation. Noting that the visit matched a previous sojourn undertaken by an SLC entourage to Singapore, where Dubai leaders learned about the nation’s legislative procedures, Bin Meshar described how Dubai could benefit its visitors by sharing details of its own strategic vision — wherein the emirate hopes to become one of the world’s most developed countries by 2021.
Informative discussions centered around encouraging human development, creative innovation, legislative improvements and advancing knowledge to produce a legal system in sync with Dubai’s progress.
Mutual goals for the bilateral gathering included further reinforcement of ties between the nations. Foong complimented the concept of building an international legislative community while at the same time freely sharing models for best practices, an approach that can enhance international relations.
"Dubai and Singapore have solid and strategic ties and they share common denominators, most notably its unprecedented development, which will pave the way to reach a new level of excellence in all fields,” Foong said. “We are confident that the Supreme Legislation Committee will provide valuable contributions in terms of strengthening legislative and legal cooperation between Dubai and Singapore to serve the aspirations of both sides."
The emirate’s Supreme Legislation Committee serves as an integrated legal system to support Dubai’s sustainable development plans.
