The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI), in collaboration with the Department of Town Planning and Survey, Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority (SRTA) and Sharjah Water and Electricity Authority (Sewa), has announced the launch of the infrastructure development project for the 10th industrial zone in Sharjah.

The new project is one of the pioneering initiatives with the aim of reconstructing the whole area, providing the best services for the people, and keeping pace with Sharjah's universal renaissance.

This would help promote the emirate's competitiveness, develop its economic environment and its investment attractiveness, and enhance its sustainable development.

Under the guidance of His Highness Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the UAE Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, the facilities located on the project site will get a 50 per cent reduction of service fees throughout the project implementation.

This was stated during the inauguration ceremony of the project which was held at the SCCI headquarters recently. Abdullah Sultan Al Owais, SCCI chairman; Eng Salah bin Butti Al Muhairi, adviser to the Department of Town Planning and Survey and deputy chairman of the Sharjah Urban Planning Council; Dr Eng Rashid Al Leem, chairman of Sewa; Eng Yousef Saleh Al Suwaiji, chairman of the SRTA; Waleed AbdelRahman BuKhatir, second vice-chairman of the SCCI; a number of board of directors; the SCCI's director-general Mohammad Ahmed Amin Al Awadi; and media representatives, attended the inaugural ceremony.

The project, according to the implementation contracts, covers an area of 2.16 million square metres, and it will be carried out over 18 months by Sharjah Contracting and Khatib and Alami.

The contract also includes the establishment of a modern and advanced road network, the implementation of a rainwater and lighting network and the rehabilitation of sidewalks and parking lots as per the highest safety and security standards and best international practices.
