The main goal is to preserve, highlight and promote the rich Arabian heritage of the emirate.

Ajman is building a Dh25-million heritage district that is set to be a key tourist destination in the emirate, the Ajman Municipality announced at a recent investors forum.

At the forum, Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, chairman of the Ajman Municipality and Planning Department, has unveiled details about the development project that will built around the Ajman Museum, one of the oldest places in the Gulf.

The main goal is to preserve, highlight and promote the rich Arabian heritage of the emirate, while driving economic growth and boosting tourism in Ajman, he said.

Canopies of trees and lots of greenery would be grown around the historical area that shall treat visitors to a distinctive cultural experience and take them on a journey back in time, Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid added.

Mohammed Ahmed bin Omair Al Muhairi, executive director of the infrastructure development sector, said the 5,300sqm project is also being developed as a venue for local and international events.

Besides showcasing the history of Ajman, the heritage district also offers a lot of opportunities for investors and entrepreneurs.

Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid said a number of different investment options are available at competitive prices, structured to support small and medium-sized enterprises.

According to Huraia Al Baloushi, head of projects and business development, the project would have slots for 37 stores, ranging from 40 to 100 square metres, which would be available for businesses.
