Sharjah is the third largest and the third most populous of the seven emirates in the United Arab Emirates and contributes around 8 % of the country’s GDP. Sharjah City is often called the cultural capital of the UAE.
To strengthen the relations with the emirate Ambassador Henrik Landerholm, Deputy Anette Nilsson Exner and Trade Commissioner Massoud Biouki visited Sharjah Chamber of Commerce on December 12 where they were received by Acting Director General Mohamed Ahmed Amin Alawadhi. A visit also took place to Sharjah Investment and Development Authority, Shurooq, where they were received by Executive Chairman Marwan J. Al Sarkal. The meetings confirmed that there are many areas where Sweden and the Emirate of Sharjah could collaborate and a roundtable will be organized this Spring to connect Sharjah representatives with relevant Swedish companies.
