The UAE, represented by the General Civil Aviation Authority, won a membership in the Executive Council of the Arab Civil Aviation Organisation (ACAC) during the 24th General Assembly Meeting held in Rabat, Morocco, on May 9, receiving 17 votes out of 20.

The Executive Council of the Arab Civil Aviation Authority is composed of nine countries, and 15 Arab nations out of 20 competed for the nine seats. Saif Mohammad Al Suwaidi, Director-General of the General Civil Aviation Authority, said: “We in the UAE, are always keen to promote joint Arab action in the aviation industry and the ACAC. The strong growth achieved by the civil aviation sector in the UAE in recent years reflects the pivotal role of aviation in supporting the diversification of the national economy, and the GCAA expects that the sector will continue to grow in the coming years as one of the main components of the post-oil economy.”
