The Cabinet, headed by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, also reviewed preparations to host Expo 2020 Dubai, starting in October, with the participation of 190 nations.

"After 10 years of hard work, 230,000 workers, Expo 2020 will kick off after 170 days, and we are ready to welcome the world at Expo 2020 Dubai," said His Highness.

"The success of the Expo after the pandemic will be a success for the world and optimism for global recovery," added Sheikh Mohammed.

All federal ministries have been instructed to play leadership roles during the Expo to expand international co-operation and contribute to key issues on the agenda.

A new policy to enhance UAE exports was also approved, in addition to amendments to the country's tax and insolvency laws, making it easier for businesses.

The Cabinet meeting was held at Al Qasr Al Watan Palace in Abu Dhabi.
