Sharjah began its business odyssey centuries ago. Business grew from trading with the Far East and pearl trading and forged ahead at a great pace to its present status.
There was no major publicity blitz, just a carefully plotted out master plan in which commerce and culture blended into a harmonious work ethos.
In the last four years the concept has matured and its tangible success proves that Sharjah's commercial agenda has some very real merit. The 12% annual growth rate in Sharjah's industrial graph did not just happen overnight, nor was it a random development. It has been the distillation of some very meticulous planning and detailed know-how.
