Residents or users can also follow up the reports using the application itself or online through Abu Dhabi Government’s gateway or by calling the contact center on 800 555. With its slogan “Your City, Your Community, Your App”, it aims to increase civic participation and collaboration between the public and the government in order to improve the Emirate at all levels. The Executive Council positively believes that it will boost the confidence among the public, investors and the business sector in particular, in the reliability and flexibility of government services.
