Jumpstarts activities with key participation in International Dialogue for Human Resources Development conference
Sharjah, UAE, July 28, 2008: The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) has announced several local and international activities to further energize Sharjah’s economic growth, starting with the Chamber’s participation in the high-profile International Dialogue for Human Resources Development (IDHRD) conference. SCCI is promoting key public-private partnerships and encouraging broader entrepreneurship to maintain the emirate’s rapid emergence as a key contributor to sustainable national economic development.
SCCI Assistant Director General of Economic & International Affairs, Mohammed Ahmed Amin represented Sharjah during the recent “Modern Strategies” international conference organized by IDHRD at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Amman, Jordan. Amin joined four days of productive discussions on international and regional economic trends and issues as well as new methods for managing chambers of commerce and industry, with representatives from Saudi Arabia, Iran, Bahrain, Jordan, and Yemen.
“The valuable insights we have gained through our participation in the recent conference will help us boost SCCI’s position as a vital agent for Sharjah’s accelerated growth. The Chamber wants to ensure that the phenomenal growth being experienced by the emirate is both properly directed and sustainable. So far we have been very successful in providing the necessary technical consultation and infrastructural support to boost domestic development,” said Mohammed Ahmed Amin.
Sharjah continues to attract economic activity due to its investor- and business-friendly environment, which is highlighted by nominal customs duties; world-class ports; restriction-free commercial and financial policies; and total tax exemption.
“Sharjah is playing a larger role in national development; we are pleased to say that the SCCI has been, and will continue to be, a major factor in promoting advanced economic activity throughout the area. We remain committed to formulating viable and productive programs that will encourage increased participation from all the emirate’s stakeholders in our shared quest for prolonged progress,” concluded Amin.
