The Sharjah Chamber also participated in a panel discussion.

There, Aisha Saleh, Chairperson of the Chamber’s Youth Council, emphasised the role of nurturing young entrepreneurs in strengthening the business landscape and fostering the development of innovative projects.

Also highlighted was the need to support the aspirations of young entrepreneurs to help them launch innovative initiatives, providing them with essential training and exposure to international best practices through involvement in economic events and specialised exhibitions.
