Egypt's PM Sherif Ismail in Dubai for global government summit

Egypt's Prime Minister Sherif Ismail is in the UAE for an international summit of governments where he will review efforts made by Cairo to provide better services to citizens, the official website of Egypt's state TV said.

The 4th round of the three-day World Government Summit, held in Dubai, brings together over 3000 heads of state, thinkers, policy makers, and private sector experts from some 125 countries to discuss the latest means of developing governments around the world.
 
US President Barack Obama will be a keynote speaker at the event, addressing the attendees via closed-circuit television. Other speakers include the President of Rwanda and the President of the World Bank.
 
Ismail is due to give an address during the global gathering, which kicks off Monday, reviewing "the government's efforts towards sustainable development and better services for citizens in the coming years."
 
He will also look at means to bolster online services for government bodies as well as ways to make life easier for investors.
