Every year, major shopping centres and thousands of shops seize this opportunity to market their products, as the festival grants a wide range of advantages and benefits for the participating businesses.”
Al-Jarwan underlined SCCI's commitment to providing all means of support for shopping centres and shops, by facilitating registration procedures according to the location, enable the completion of registration processes either at SCCI's headquarters or its branches located in the cities of Khorfakkan, Kalba and Al Dhaid. Al-Jarwan pointed out that SCCI seeks, in cooperation and coordination with local government departments and authorities, to provide all that the SRF needs to be a big success. He expected that the festival would see a wide engagement from various commercial, social, and cultural establishments and organisations.
