SEDD reorganizes Certain Areas to Participate Number of Activities in Sharjah
As an implementation for the wise directives of Sharjah Executive Council, Sharjah Economic Development Department “SEDD” has reorganized number of economic activities to be conducted and participated in certain areas.

This comes within the Department’s concerns to attract investors in coordination with the competent authorities in the emirate by providing more investment opportunities in areas with advanced infrastructure, facilities and services of high quality, markets and specialized areas for various sectors, especially in used auto parts. Such thing would enhance the role of the sector and the position of the emirate as an ideal destination for car trade in the region.

HE stressed that SEDD focuses on supporting and developing services provided to the business sector in Sharjah. such thing falls within the wise directives of HH Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, and the wise pursuit of HH Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Crown Prince, Deputy Ruler of Sharjah, and Chairman of Sharjah Executive Council, who call to offer all facilities to the investor in order to develop the economic situation and provide a stimulating environment for investment.
On the other hand, Fahad Ahmad Al Khamiri, Director of Registration and Licensing Department at SEDD, explained that Department focuses on strengthening its relationship with the private sector to identify the needs of the business sector and provide more facilities for it. This comes as part of its strategy aimed at promoting economic growth and consolidating Sharjah's position on the list of the most important global trade and economic centers.
