The Government Communication Department is made up of two divisions; one for coordination and follow-up, the other for partnership relations, social responsibility and happiness.
The Media and Electronic Communication Division has departments working on media relations, news editing and
monitoring and archiving.
The tasks handled by this department include the development of innovative media plans and media campaigns to
enhance MoF’s presence in the media and the provision of technical support to official spokespersons.
All media activities are prepared and implemented, including news updates, online bulletins, stories and media reports.
In addition the team monitors and archives financial and economic news, prepares media and analytical reports on
published news, and publishes and archives MoF's own activities and events.
The MoF website, social media channels and corporate identity are also managed by the department, whereby the
principles of creativity and excellence are upheld by applying approved quality standards, and taking into account the
evaluation standards set by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority.
Content management, development, preparing awareness-raising campaigns for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram,
LinkedIn and YouTube all come under the authority of the department, as does the overseeing of advertising material,
promotion of MoF's programmes, projects and work, and implementing and developing a corporate identity.
This division deals with three strategic themes related to MoF’s work and plans, namely:
Partnership Relations; A department manages relations with local and international partners. This is achieved via
effective communication, concluding agreements, and organising meetings according to the applicable policies at
MoF. It also monitors partner views and feedback by carrying out surveys.
Social Responsibility; A department handles the organising of events and internal activities for employees, initiatives
and awareness-raising campaigns for various segments of society. It also highlights the ministry's role and
commitment to social and national responsibilities in various fields.
Happiness; In line with its commitment to implement government plans and programmes, as well as the “Ministry of
Finance… Happiest Ministry” initiative launched by the Minister of Finance, MoF aims to increase the happiness levels
of the public.
The Government Communication Department seeks to organise campaigns to make employees happy, to develop
plans to achieve partner satisfaction, to meet the needs of media personnel, and to raise awareness of positive
concepts and happiness in the community
