The United Arab Emirates, represented by the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), has been re-elected as a member of the Executive Council of the Arab Civil Aviation Organization by unanimous vote in the elections held during the organisation's General Assembly, which took place in Rabat, Morocco, on July 3, 2024. 

On this occasion, His Excellency Abdullah bin Touq Al Marri, Minister of Economy and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), remarked that the UAE, under the guidance of its wise leadership, has achieved a new milestone in the civil aviation sector with its re-election to the Executive Council of the Arab Civil Aviation Organization. This achievement underscores the strong partnership and brotherly bonds that bind the UAE with the Arab countries and serves as a testament to the trust in the strength and stature of the civil aviation sector as a global aviation hub.

"Civil aviation is undoubtedly a pivotal area in Arab cooperation, where significant progress has been achieved in several key areas. The UAE is committed to supporting all efforts to enhance and develop joint Arab action, raising it to more advanced levels. These efforts aim to serve the future developmental visions of Arab countries and bolster economic growth across the region", His Excellency added.
