Chairman's Message

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority website. I hope you will enjoy its interactive features and find that it truly reflects the image of our beautiful emirate. The Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority has been at the forefront of celebrating, promoting and showcasing Sharjah, the home of Arab and Islamic Culture, as a safe family destination with a difference. In the past few years Sharjah has gone from strength to strength, making huge strides on all fronts – from remarkable economic progress to leaps in education, infrastructural development and art and culture.
