SCCI concludes successful participation in Sharjah Investment Forum


The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) will conclude today its successful sponsoring and partnering with the two-day Sharjah Investment Forum’s sixth edition, organised by the Sharjah FDI Office (Invest in Sharjah).

The event saw wide participation of high-profile national and international decision-makers, businessmen, executives, senior government officials, and investors.

The SCCI’s pavilion witnessed some of the most fruitful business meetings that brought together Abdullah Sultan Al-Owais, SCCI’s Chairman, and senior officials from the Arab and international chambers of commerce, representatives of economic organisations and businessmen. The meetings discussed ways of cooperation and the best incentives for investment in the Emirate of Sharjah.

Mohammed Ahmed Amin Al-Awadi, SCCI’s Director-General, said, “The Chamber’s participation and sponsorship of the forum is an objective, and part of its endeavour to promote the Emirate of Sharjah as a distinctive regional hub for international companies and investments, thus enhancing Sharjah’s prominence on the global investment map and beefing up trade and investment in the Emirate”.

Al-Awadi also emphasised the results that came with the SCCI’s participation in the important event, as it helped build strategic partnerships with the organisations and government authorities with a view to exchanging ideas and proposals on the most important economic issues that will contribute to enhancing the emirate’s economy and its efforts to boost integration between the government and private sectors.

Al-Awadi stressed the forum’s motto ‘Redefining economies making significant strides for a better future’, its topics, and sessions, which brought together 50 speakers selected from prominent international investors, businessmen, and local, Arab, and international decision-makers.

He noted that the event activities were very important for the SCCI to explore the economic status quo and the UAE’s future vision aimed at achieving sustainable growth. He also underscored the need for developing innovative plans and programmes that fulfill the ambitions of the new Emirati economic scene and support the targeted vital sectors. This will complement the SCCI’s endeavours to further the national economy and push it forward with investment incentives bundled with the existing and future projects – thus enhancing Sharjah’s position as a leading regional hub for establishing and doing business, the Director-General added.

The SCCI was represented at the forum by Haleema Ali Al-Owais, the chamber’s board member, who attended the ‘Future of family businesses and their Impact in the region’ session. The SCCI’s special pavilion highlighted the distinctive services and support the chamber provides to the business community and investors in order to help them grow their commercial and industrial activities.
