The state delegation is headed by His Excellency Abdullah bin Touq Al Marri, Minister of Economy and Chairman of GCAA's Board of Directors, The delegation includes His Excellency Saif Mohammed Al Suwaidi, Director General of the Civil Aviation Authority, and a number of experts and specialists.

The UAE joined the International Civil Aviation Organization in 1972 and was able to join the council in 2007, and maintain its membership for the fifth time in a row in 2019. During that period, the UAE contributed to supporting efforts aimed at strengthening the future of the aviation sector and supporting the organization in implementing its strategic objectives.

The UAE has many factors that qualify it to win again the seat of the organization's council due to its leading position in the civil aviation industry regionally and internationally, and its close cooperation relations with the organization and member states


It is noteworthy that according to the ICAO statute, the 193 member states of the organization choose only 36 countries to form the Council of the International Civil Aviation Organization, which is the legislative body of the organization.
