The strategic move was taken during the recent coordination meeting to define the functions of the new team, which will be responsible for identifying general and specific requirements related to health and environmental activities, as well as conducting joint inspection campaigns to ensure continuous economic activity and reduce its negative impact. The team will also ensure that the external service centers comply with stipulated requirements in an effort to standardize and streamline procedures to make transactions quick and efficient.

He pointed out that such vital step paves the way to reach the highest levels of coordination, cooperation and integration, ensuring that the agreed requirements in the licensing and accreditation of health and environmental activities are implemented and the balance between economic growth and environmental conservation is maintained.
Al Kutbi added, “Our focus is on the organization of environmental and health activities because of our belief in the importance of health and the environment as key to achieve sustainable growth and happiness of the people Ajman. We look forward to having a fruitful cooperation in adopting the best global practices that will regulate health and environmental activities, streamlining procedures, and increasing investment activity in line with the strategic objectives of the Ajman Government. We are committed to support the team in its efforts to implement a comprehensive field survey in the Emirate of Ajman to determine the level of seriousness of existing activities in the health and environment sector. Accordingly, we will take necessary measures in re-organizing them in a manner consistent with our aspirations to build a prosperous economy for sustainable development and the welfare of the people of Ajman.”
