Dubai, Oct 17, 2008 (WAM) - The UAE has been elected to the council of the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) for a two-year term.

Represented through the Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology (ESMA), the UAE was elected at ISO's 31st General Assembly in Dubai yesterday as a member of the council, with 97 countries having voting rights.

'Electing the UAE as an ISO council member adds to the accomplishments of the country and enhances its representation at global organisations including ISO,' said ESMA director general Walid Bin Falah Al Mansouri. 'This qualifies it to become an active member in the global standardisation community'.

Al Mansouri dedicated the election success to the UAE leadership, stressing that it is the outcome of the wise directives and policies of UAE rulers, commenting: 'HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, has said that quality has become the slogan and the lifestyle of the UAE government'.

Al Mansouri stressed that council membership will enable the UAE to demonstrate the government's serious support to national and GCC standards, one of the prime elements of sustainable development and growth records. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
