Shaikh Mohammad states: 'Talking a lot about politics in the Arab world is a waste of time, a corruption of ethics and a waste of resources'
Dubai: The Arab world is suffering from poor management of resources and the region lacks administrators who can facilitate development in various fields, His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, said in a series of tweets on Saturday.
“Life has taught me that talking a lot about politics in the Arab world is a waste of time, a corruption of ethics and a waste of resources,” Shaikh Mohammad tweeted.

“Whoever wants to accomplish something for his people, should work in his backyard. History is the witness…Either great achievements speak for themselves or empty speeches with meaningless words,” he added.
“We have a surplus of politicians in the Arab world but a shortage of administrators. We have a management crisis, not a crisis of resources. Look at China and Japan?
"Where are they now even though they do not have natural resources. There are countries that possess oil, gas, water and human capital but lack development….and even cannot provide basic services, such as roads and electricity, to their people.”
“In our Arab world, a politician is the one who is in charge of economy, education, media and even sports!
"The politician’s true job is to facilitate the lives of economists, academics, media persons, businessmen, and others.
"A politicians’ job is to facilitate people's lives, and resolve crises, not create them…making achievements not destroying them.”
