Sharjah-realestate“The UAE is amongst the fastest growing tourism markets in the region and the world.” said Khalid Jasim Al Midfa, Director General, Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority.

“The new cruise-line industry is bringing in nearly 50,000 extra tourists to our emirate alone. The cruise industry is a valuable addition to any country mainly due to the fact the “tourism footprint” is low and the economic opportunity is high. Once this area has fully realised its enterprise opportunity, it is estimated that cruises could potentially generate another Dh 16 million for our economy,” added Al Midfa.
