Sharjah gets Passport2Export: Top 10 export markets revealed
Sharjah has long been a manufacturing hub for the region, with exports playing an important role in the emirate’s economy. Manufacturing accounts for 17.1 per cent of Sharjah’s gross domestic product.
The Sharjah Exports Development Centre will help domestic manufacturers increase the competitiveness of their goods and find new markets abroad as well as strengthen existing international trade connections, Sharjah Chamber said in a media statement.
The centre will provide a range of services to exporters and those that wish to begin exporting for the first time. It will help organise specialised training programmes to improve the skills and knowledge of staff within exporting companies and organisations that aspire to start exporting their products.
This includes a specialised programme called Passport2Export, which will focus on areas including financial and regulatory requirements, international market research and developing export strategies. The centre will also run a range of in-depth workshops, lectures and seminars on specific aspects of exporting.
