The Ministerial Council for Services passed yesterday a proposal put forward by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) on the UAE domain on the internet in Arabic (Emarat).
The proposal is part of the TRA's strategy to chalk out a national plan for running and managing internet in Arabic language. It falls in line with the new approach of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to create equivalent domains in languages other than English.
The UAE domain in English is ae. The UAE domain in Arabic will contribute to increasing the number of surfers to Arabic sites and further promote and strengthen the UAE's identity.
Presided over by H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Presidential Affairs, the Council also discussed two studies by the Marriage Fund on the contribution of the grant on covering wedding expenses and preference benchmarks in regards to applicants. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
