The Chairperson of the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq), HE Sheikha Bodour Al Qasimi, yesterday presided over the Sharjah Day session in Milan, Italy.

Organised by Shurooq, the session took place on the sidelines of the fifth Economic Commission between the UAE and Italy. Sharjah Day aimed at introducing a number of Italian businesses and entrepreneurs to available opportunities in the emirate.

Sheikha Bodour emphasised that the UAE and Italy have excellent relations and a flourishing trade and cultural partnership, and that Italy is one of the UAE’s top trade partners in the European Union. She added that efforts to explore more avenues of cooperation between the two countries would help enhance their longstanding relationship.

She said: “Sharjah is an ideal business and investment hub in the Middle East due to its exceptional cultural and economic ingredients, unique strategic and geographical location, investor-friendly legal framework, diverse economy and its excellent international reputation. The emirate has transformed into one of the top investment destinations in the region thanks to the vision and directives of His Highness Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, and the efforts of government entities and authorities in the provision of the favourable economic climate.”

Sheikha Bodour added: “We at Shurooq are striving to use the best international practices and launch innovative projects that will help meet the requirements of international investors, attract foreign investment, achieve the ideal economic climate and expand the emirate’s investment base. These will be positively reflected on the economy and will contribute to boost Sharjah’s and the UAE’s position on the business map.”

The Sharjah Day session was attended by senior UAE officials including HE Dr Sultan bin Ahmed Sultan Al Jaber, Minister of State, HE Noura Mohamed Juma, Consul General of the UAE in Milan, HRH Prince Serge De Jugoslavie Savoi, HE Ambassador Dr Philip Reeker, Consul General of the United States of America in Milan and HE Majid Saif Al Ghurair, Chairman of Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, in addition to the Ministry of Economy’s official delegation and a number of figures from the UAE.

In addition, there are currently over 8,000 Italian companies, dealerships and trademarks registered with the UAE Ministry of Economy.”
