See Sharjah is aimed at attracting a greater number of tourists and business people to the city that is fast emerging as a key centre for business, education, sports and tourism. Separate editions of the directory will focus on each field.

The e-guide will provide comprehensive information to visitors and residents and both government and private sectors.

“Tourism is no more limited to leisure alone,” said See Sharjah Chairman Abdul Aziz Al Midfa. “Sharjah is fast emerging as a key business, industry, property, finance, education, health, culture, MICE and sports destination. Over a million people visit Sharjah each year for various purposes. We understand today, business success depends on fast and easy access to information.”

To start with, a total of 900,000 copies in both Arabic and in English will be distributed free to Sharjah government departments, private sector companies and non-profit organisations. For individuals it will be available in hotels, airport, restaurants and shopping malls.
