The government on Sunday officially changed the name of the Industry, Trade and Labor Ministry to the Economy Ministry, fulfilling one of Minister Naftali Bennett's coalition agreement demands.

Bennett insisted on renaming the ministry he now heads because he felt its prior name didn't properly convey its purview.

The cabinet also fulfilled a coalition demand of Finance Minister Yair Lapid on Sunday when it approved the formation of a housing cabinet, which he will lead.

The rest of the cabinet will include Construction and Housing Minister Uri Ariel, Energy and Water Minister Silvan Shalom, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon, Environment Minister Amir Peretz, Agriculture Minister Yair Shamir, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, Interior Minister Gideon Sa'ar and Transportation Minister Israel Katz.
