UAE merges energy and infrastructure ministries

The UAE announced a more agile and nimble government structure that will lead the country into the future and be flexible enough to adapt to cater to any changes along the way the Khaleejtimes reported.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, announced the changes through Twitter this morning. He noted the new government structure has been approved and is supported by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

“The goal of structural changes today is a government that is faster in decision-making, and is more up to date with changes,” said Sheikh Mohammed, adding that the new structure will help the government in seizing opportunities and “in dealing with the new stage in our history”. The new structure reflects “a flexible and fast government whose goal is to consolidate the achievements and gains of the country,” said Sheikh Mohammed.

“The new government will also see a new ministry, the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure, which will be a result of the merger of the Ministry of Energy with the Ministry of Infrastructure. The new ministry will oversee the Zayed Housing Program and the Federal Authority for Land and Maritime Transport. Oil Minster Suhail Al Mazroui has been named the minister of the newly formed Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure.”.
