Sharjah, 3 April,2023
Sharjah Asset Management, the investment arm of the Emirate of Sharjah, has announced the takeover of management and operations of Al Dhaid livestock market. The livestock market began receiving visitors from the beginning of the blessed month of Ramadan, after the Sharjah Directorate Public Works (SDPW) successfully completed preparations in accordance with the highest standards and integrated services to meet the needs of residents and visitors of the region.
Eng. Hamid Al Zarouni, CEO of Souq Al Jubail, said: “The opening of the livestock market in Al Dhaid is in line with Sharjah Asset Management’s strategy to provide integrated and quality facilities and services in Sharjah, complementing the widespread development witnessed by the Emirate that seeks to achieve sustainable well-being for all residents of the Emirate.”
Al Zarouni added: “The market was designed according to the best international standards, utilising the latest technology and devices in the industry. Emphasis was placed on visitor health and safety, as well as efficiency of the market as a whole, in order to accommodate large numbers of visitors. The market also applies several standards in its day-to-day operations, including adherence to green building requirements, environmental preservation systems, reducing heat emissions, and following a central cleaning system for slaughter halls to reduce the use of cleaning equipment and materials. In addition to its strategic location in the Al Owaided locality in the centre of Al Dhaid city, other vital indicators ensure provision of services to the highest standards.”
