He also thanked the partners, sponsors, evaluation teams, Award Judges and all those who contributed to the success of this Award. He stressed the eagerness of the Chamber to continue spreading a culture of quality and excellence and to contribute to the development of the economic role of private sector institutions and the Gulf business communities.

 

HE Khaled bin Butti Al Hajri pointed out that the Sharjah Economic Excellence Award was keen on developing its evaluation process and improving its standards, which is based on the commitment of the Award to adhering to the highest standards of quality and excellence and its keenness to improve its performance and its role towards the private sector.

 
Nada Al Hajri, General Coordinator of the Sharjah Economic Excellence Award, stated that the development of the award is based on a strategy through which the Chamber aims to encourage economic establishments to strive for excellence and optimum performance. She stated that the winners deserved the merit and honor of winning these awards in recognition of their excellence and creativity and valuable efforts during 2017.

 
Al Hajri added that the 2017 edition witnessed the participation of more than 100 economic establishments. She stated that the Board of Trustees of the Award discussed a number of proposals aimed at developing the award, increasing the number of participants, enhancing its role in cultivating a competitive business environment and supporting and encouraging the business community in Sharjah and various Gulf countries.

 
The Sharjah Economic Excellence Award was launched in 2002 as one of Sharjah Chamber's initiatives to promote corporate governance, promote quality standards and work ethic, develop the responsibility of private sector enterprises towards society, encourage environmentally friendly practices, and enhance the role of economic institutions in promoting sustainable development.

 
The Award has witnessed continuous development which includes the implementation of the model set by the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM), and the adoption of comprehensive strategies to improve performance in accordance with the highest international quality standards.

 

The Sharjah Chamber has attached a cash prize to the Award categories of “Sharjah UAE Startups Award 2017” and “Sharjah Entrepreneurs Award 2017,” in its efforts to both spread the culture of excellence among the private sector and to support young investors and motivate them to excel.
