The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority, also known as Shurooq, is the driving force behind the transformation of Sharjah. Guided by our traditions and inspired by innovation, we are committed to enhancing Sharjah’s appeal as an investment, tourism, and business destination. An independent government entity, we facilitate partnerships and connect investors, corporations, and entrepreneurs with the right opportunities.

To achieve its mission, Shurooq seeks to evaluate and follow-up on tourism, investment, and heritage-related infrastructure projects, participating in the comprehensive construction and development processes both within the emirate of Sharjah and in the U.A.E. as a whole. The Authority values professionalism, and provides sound consultation resulting from study and experience.

Team spirit is important, as the Authority believes in the importance of shared responsibility as the key to true success in the effective building and development of projects and business relations. Through this, Shurooq hopes to prepare investment-related infrastructure projects and modernise and develop existing ones, working in sectors including, but not limited to, retail, government, construction, real estate, agriculture, and more.

Through setting up a comprehensive information centre that highlights investment opportunities,Shurooq has facilitated development targets with other bodies and organisations and has set up special investment zones and suggested investment-related laws to further facilitate these endeavours.

This includes enhancing integration with government and private organisations to ensure achievement of short, medium, and long-term goals as well as encouraging free circulation of information and data between legal, tourism, and economic bodies. Shurooq believes in the principles of transparency, exchange of information and support experiences.
