DED Ajman launches second phase of commercial licencing procedures initiative

The Department of Economic Development-Ajman (DED-Ajman) has begun implementing the second phase of its ‘Single window for all commercial licencing procedures’ initiative.

The initiative is part of the department’s continuing efforts to improve the customer’s steps in obtaining a business licence in the emirate—making the whole process faster, easier and more convenient while also helping create a more investment friendly environment for Ajman, which can help in achieving its set goals and objectives by 2021. The second phase of the initiative was launched during a recent meeting held by DED-Ajman with eGovernment, which was attended by key representatives from Public Transport Corporation, Ajman Police Department, the Directorate of Civil Defense and the Ajman Municipality and Planning Department. 

HE Ali Eissa Al Nuaimi, Director General, DED-Ajman, said that the initiative represents strategic importance for the department, acting as a key driving force in the move to optimise economic and investment capabilities of the emirate. Al Nuaimi noted that the initiative serves as a strong foundation that aims to provide an ease in doing business while also maintaining Ajman's progress and move to achieve its vision.

“This project is part of DED-Ajman's objectives to create an attractive investment environment and drive in more success for businesses who have invested in the emirate. The move complements our commitment towards building a competitive, diversified and sustainable economy for Ajman, which in turn, reinforces its position as an attractive investment destination. We remain confident that this project will provide a single and comprehensive window for the best services that meets the demands of our investors and customers and also achieving the goals of Ajman Vision 2021 to spread happiness and ensure its economic and social welfare,” said Al Nuaimi.

The first phase of the initiative focused on seamlessly providing the business licencing process with an electronic link to related entities, which include the Public Transport Corporation, Ajman Police Department, the Directorate of Civil Defense, the Ajman Municipality and Planning Department and the Ajman Chamber of Commerce. The second phase will continue with providing an electronic link strategic partners and stakeholders--issuing the business licences through a single window to finalise the transactions of DED-Ajman's customers.
