DUBAI, 11th July 2020 – After approval from UAE President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE’s new Cabinet ministers took their oaths before Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum during a remote swearing-in ceremony.

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, was present during the remote swearing-in ceremony.

On this occasion, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid said that the UAE government reflects the wise vision of UAE President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and is now entering a new phase tasked with preparing for the next 50 years of the United Arab Emirates’ development march.

“With the support of my brother His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, the UAE government has been swift in responding to the new global changes. We are among the top countries in the world in terms of proactively responding to surrounding challenges, taking proper decisions and resetting our priorities,” His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid said.

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed said: “The UAE has entered a new phase of effectiveness in the government work led by my brother Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid. The UAE has always been proactive in dealing with transformations with creative thinking and forward-looking visions. My best wishes for the new government team that took the oath today to serve the UAE and its people.”

Three ministers will also be appointed under the Ministry of Economy, as well as a Minister of State for Digital Economy, Artificial Intelligence and Remote Work Applications while a UAE Government Media Office will be established.

The new structure of the government includes the merger of the Ministry of Energy and the Ministry of Infrastructure to become the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure, the merger of the National Media Council, NMC, and the Federal Youth Authority to the Ministry of Culture, the merger of the General Pension and Social Security Authority and the Ministry of Community Development, the merger of the National Qualifications Authority and the Ministry of Education, and the merger of the Insurance Authority and the Securities and Commodities Authority.
