His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, has confirmed, in a message on Twitter, the approval of the list of members of the new Cabinet by His Highness President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The Cabinet includes four new members, while a new Ministry of Development and International Co-operation has been created. The Ministries of Foreign Trade and Economy have been merged.

Among the changes, Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan becomes Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research and Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi Minister of Development and International Co-operation. New entrant Abdullah bin Mohammed Belhaif Al Nuaimi becomes Minister of Public Works.

HH Sheikh Mohammed said that the new Cabinet has been formed "in alignment with our preparations for the new phase of government action, during which we seek to accelerate development in our country and achieve the aspirations of our people, as well as expanding our relations with the world around us".

The introduction of new faces to the government team, he said, would introduce fresh ideas, enabling the government to keep up to date and to deal with the national issues that are considered a priority for all the people of the UAE.

The formation of the new Ministry of Development and International Co-operation, headed by Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi, is intended to enable the country to handle the crucial role in development that it plays around the world, with the aim of broadening the scope of such activities, whether on a country-to-country basis or through the various international organisations active in this field. It will also help to consolidate the status of the UAE as an important donor and key player in the process of global human development, as well as its relations with nations undergoing development.

The Office for Co-ordination of Foreign Aid will become part of the new ministry which will begin to perform its functions immediately with regards to a variety of issues, including the development of public policy on overseas development aid. It will also propose areas of priority in terms of development assistance, will document foreign aid to other countries by both the UAE's governmental and non-governmental sectors, will assess the impact of foreign aid programmes on recipient countries, and will handle co-ordination with local and international authorities in the humanitarian aid sector.

In other appointments, Abdul Rahman Mohammed Al Owais becomes Minister of Health, new entrant Suhail Faraj Faris Al Mazrouei becomes Minister of Energy and new entrants Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber and Abdullah Mohammed Saeed Ghobash become Minister of State.

The new appointments are intended to inject new blood, particularly from those who have previously demonstrated efficiency and professionalism in either the private or public sectors. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
