The Council of Ministers approved today the Royal Decree amending Royal Decree 1886/2011, of December 30, which establishes the Delegated Commissions of the Government. With this rule, the commission of the Delegated Commission of Economic Affairs (CDGAE) is adapted because the Ministry of Economy and Business will assume new functions.

Nadia Calviño, Minister of Economy and Business, will chair the CDGAE, whose first meeting is scheduled for next Thursday. For its part, the Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, will serve as vice president.

The rest of the commission will be made up of the Minister of Development; the Ministers of Education and Vocational Training; Labor, Migration and Social Security, Industry, Commerce and Tourism; the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food; the Ministers of Territorial Policy and Public Function, for the Ecological Transition; and the Minister of Science, Innovation and Universities.

In turn, the Secretaries of State for Economy and Business Support are part of the CDGAE; for the Information Society and the Digital Agenda; of the Treasury; and of Budgets and Expenses.

Exceptionally, when dealing with issues in the Commission related to the European Union, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation and the Secretary of State for the European Union will attend.

The holders of the rest of the ministerial departments may be called when matters with economic or budgetary implications related to said ministries are discussed.

A representative of the Presidency of the Government and the Secretary of State for Economy and Business Support will also always attend the CDGAE as Secretary of the Commission.
