US Congress explores business opportunities in Sharjah

(Sharjah) – The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) has recently welcomed a delegation of representatives of the US Congress at a roundtable event hosted at the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The event formed part of a visit by the delegation to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with the aim of participating in an educational and cultural exchange.
The delegation, led by U.S. Congresswoman and Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Marcia L. Fudge, was met by Robert Waller, US Consul General to Dubai, Abdalla Sultan Al Owais, Chairman of the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Marwan bin Jassim Al Sarkal, CEO of the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq), in addition to a number of Sharjah entities representatives.
The roundtable aimed at familiarising the US delegation with the range of investment and business opportunities on offer in Sharjah and took an open discussion format.
Speaking in his opening address, Marwan bin Jassim Al Sarkal, said, “The US and the U.A.E. have enjoyed longstanding partnerships and cooperation in the areas of energy and infrastructure development, green build aerospace, defence security, media, tourism and culture, and, the two most burgeoning sectors within the region, medicine and education. The relationship between Sharjah and the US also deepened further with the recent signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Shurooq and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce aimed at promoting investment, trade, technical and economic cooperation, enhancing export sanctions, and the exchange of visits made by trade delegations between the United States of America and emirate of Sharjah.” The Shurooq CEO went on to remark that the MoU had followed on the highly successful Sharjah USA Roadshow in October of last year, which saw the largest ever delegation of Sharjah based corporations, entities, organizations, and government departments make their way to the States – representing more than 20 separate entities.
