His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, stressed the importance of conducting surveys in order to create initiatives and make decisions that will serve the needs of UAE citizens in Sharjah.

Sheikh Sultan made the statement in an exclusive TV interview with Sharjah Television, which will be aired on Tuesday (yesterday) via the Sharjah TV and Radio Direct Line programme.

The 30-minute interview was conducted with Dr Sheikh Sultan as he attended the opening of the London Book Fair 2013.

"A recent demographic survey showed that there are 6,500 job applicants and 16,500 job seekers in the emirate of Sharjah. This got me thinking about the status of these applicants and job seekers. We have instructed the Department of Human Resources to immediately review the applications and provide us with information for emergency cases. As such, we have looked into a total of 116 cases,” said Dr Sheikh Sultan.

"The survey also indicated that there are 158,000 Emiratis in Sharjah. A total of 18,000 of these Emiratis do not have a Sharjah-issued family register, but those of other emirates. This means that Sharjah is attracting work forces,” added Dr Sheikh Sultan.

Dr Sheikh Sultan also spoke about statistics collected in the Eastern Region of the emirate.

"The survey shows that around 53,000 Emiratis are living in the Eastern Region of the emirate. It is imperative that we address the issue of employment in that area in order to ease the hardship facing these citizens when they commute on a daily basis to their jobs in the cities and Central Region.”

He said that these statistics will help in making decisions and coming up with initiatives and solutions to issues.

Dr Sheikh Sultan also pointed out during the interview that the third book in his autobiographical series will begin with the time period of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and will come to an end with his death.

"God bless the late Sheikh Zayed. His generosity can be felt in the UAE, as well as the Arab and Islamic world. He has left a positive impression for our generation as well as future generations.” – Emirates News Agency, WAM
