The project will see cooperation between 24 government and federal agencies to simplify procedures. It is set to reduce the number of entities involved from 11 to one and cut down the required documents for a housing loan approval from 10 to just two.

Sheikh Mohammed expressed gratitude towards the work teams for their dedication to reducing bureaucracy and re-engineering government procedures in order to simplify processes, reduce documentation, and ultimately facilitate the lives of both customers and Emirati citizens.
