The rise of the new and renewed memberships, and certificates of origin is an additional proof on the efforts exerted by Sharjah Chamber to boost business environment and to ease the procedures and business practices in accordance with the best global practices, and to be consistent with the wise vision of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the UAE Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, to consolidate Sharjah’s position as a regional and global spot for business.”

In turn, Abdulaziz Shattaf, Assistant Director-General for Members Services at the SCCI said: “The increase of the new and renewed memberships comes as part of the efforts exerted by the chamber to attract new investments, through comprehensive plans and strategies that facilitated membership procedures and its renewal as well. Those strategies also provided competitive advantages to the members to ease their business practice, in addition to giving a value added to their activities.

Al Shattaf also pointed out that the rise of the number of certificates of origin issued by the chamber during the last two months emphasizes the Emirate’s attraction as an essential center within the global and regional trade system.
