The Report: Sharjah 2021

Sharjah has one of the most diversified economies in the UAE, with a strong foundation in industry and manufacturing. Approximately 95.8% of its economic activity was derived from non-oil sectors in 2019, positioning the emirate to absorb much of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

As it seeks to capitalise on the innovative opportunities presented by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Sharjah benefits from developed transport and logistics infrastructure, access to the Gulf and the Gulf of Oman, and a well-connected international airport. A number of initiatives aimed at developing the economy and encouraging investment inflows have been implemented over the past decade. Sharjah is working to build on these efforts through the development of more knowledge-oriented industries, with the digital economy emerging as a priority. The emirate is also positioning itself as a post-pandemic tourist destination, leverage its diverse cuisine, cultural heritage and natural attractions.
