UAE Government Ministry Undergoes Official Name Change


The UAE ushers in a significant administrative shift as a key government ministry announces its official name change.

In a recent declaration, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation revealed its revised official name as the “Ministry of Foreign Affairs.” This change aligns with Federal Decree-Law No. (3) of 2023, which amends certain provisions of Federal Decree-Law No. (8) of 2022, governing the organization of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

Renowned for its global presence through embassies and diplomatic missions, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs serves as a vital link, fostering connections between the leadership, citizens, and residents of the UAE and the international community.

This name adjustment signifies a renewed emphasis on the core responsibilities and priorities of the ministry, reinforcing its commitment to facilitating diplomatic relations, representing the UAE’s interests worldwide, and strengthening collaborations with other nations.
