His Highness’ vision was to establish facilities that contribute to the provision of commercial and consumer services aimed at improving the urban community, and to meet the needs of our citizens and residents. The company’s operational and strategic plan is to continue developing new projects, services, mechanisms, and procedures, to help further enrich the Emirate of Sharjah and improve quality of life, transforming it into a global tourist destination.”

The livestock market in Kalba, which spans an area of 20,740 square meters, opened its doors to guests recently but has quickly gained popularity with customers.
