Al Jarwan stressed that Emirati products have achieved high levels of quality and can compete globally, and he pointed out that Sharjah emirate has become a platform for launching investment in the food industry regionally and globally, thanks to its competitive edge, infrastructure and advanced logistics.

Al Jarwan asserted that the food industries have become an incentive for the industrial sector in the emirate and contribute to providing the local markets with foodstuffs, in addition to its considerable contribution to achieving food security in the country. 

Al Jarwan said visiting Global came within a program of periodic field visits organized by the Department of Economic Relations to private sector entities operating in the emirate that aims to enhance constant communication with the business community and seeing the reality of the local economic and industrial sectors, and exchange points of view. 

Al Jarwan added that the Chamber’s delegation discussed issues relevant to both sides, and showcased the Chamber’s services and business groups including the food industry group that works under the Chamber’s umbrella, and he reasserted the Chamber’s keenness to listen carefully to businessmen, investors and entrepreneurs on economic issues, which contributes to serving them better and providing them with the best support.
