Cabinet reduces board members in government-owned companies

A Cabinet session, chaired by Prime Minister, Bisher Khasawneh, to reduce the number of board members in a number of government-owned companies, as there is no need for such numbers, and in a way that is consistent with the nature of these companies’ businesses and their operational volume, by reducing two members of the board of directors of each company.

The government also approved principles and criteria for defining and preserving the urban heritage for the year 2021.

 

The Cabinet also approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Ministry of Education and the Arab Theater Authority in the UAE, in order to develop the role of theater in schools and activate it at the national level, and to enhance cooperation and exchange of expertise between the two sides in this field.
