SHARJAH – The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) and Etisalat Services Holding (ESH) discussed ways to boost cooperation and leverage the technical, information and communication technology solutions provided by ESH.
Held at the SCCI headquarters, the meeting aimed to develop the digital environment of the Sharjah Chamber, support the growth of digital services and foster the prosperity of the SCCI members and the wider business community in the emirate.
Mohammad Ahmed Amin Al Awadi, SCCI Director-General; and Muammar Al Rukhaimi, CEO of Etisalat Technology Services, attended the meeting.
Also present were Abdulaziz Mohammed Shattaf, Assistant Director-General of the Communication and Business Sector at the Sharjah Chamber, and several officials from both sides.
During the meeting, both parties examined potential cooperation mechanisms for development projects that strengthen the country’s digital economy initiatives. They also explored the advantages Etisalat offers to the business community through its value-added services.
Underscoring the importance of the digital economy in supporting the nation’s economic diversification initiatives, Al Awadi highlighted that the coordination meeting between the SCCI and ESH is expected to yield positive outcomes as both entities will work together to develop programmes and initiatives to enhance the Chamber’s digital infrastructure and services to benefit the local business community.
