Dbeibah issues decree to reduce the expenses of Foreign Ministry employees

Prime Minister Abdulhamid Dbeibah issued a decree regarding procedures and controls related to employees working abroad, which limits the educational benefits for family members of diplomats.

The decree which was attributed to reasons of public interest and rationalization of public spending, stated that the health benefits will also be limited in the same manner, which allows the educational and health benefits to be utilized only within the country of deployment.

The decree also permanently suspended the process of installing dental implants for personnel working abroad with their family members, demanding that the decision be implemented from the date of its issuance.

The Chairman of the Planning, Finance and General Budget Committee in the House of Representatives, Omar Tantoush, addressed Dbeibah in a letter in which he requested that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs be addressed to take the necessary measures to reduce the number of employees in embassies and consulates by up to 50% to reduce public spending for the year 2024.
