UAE’s Ajman Department of Economic Development (Ajman DED) launched a monthly competition entitled “The Best”, the first of its kind in the kingdom, in cooperation with its media partner, the Emirates Vision Media Network.

The competition was arranged in conjunction with the 49th National Day celebration of the UAE and it will last for a year until December 2021.

The purpose of this competition is to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) and establishments in the Ajman Emirate, to recognize outstanding social projects and to encourage entrepreneurs to improve their projects and to continue their progress.

“The Best competition is part of the initiatives of the SMES’s Taziz Programme, which account for 99.8 percent of the total economic licenses issued in the Emirate. The programme offers several free services, including ‘Projects Marketing’, and we believe that the competition will market more transparently and credibly for the successful projects existing in the Emirate, as we have involved the society in choosing fairly from among 12 projects in different sectors. These will be honoured during the year, at one project per month. We hope that this competition will stimulate the owners of projects and investors to permanently develop their ventures, and to contribute to achieving a high quality of life for the Emirate’s society.”

Abdullah Al Shehhi, CEO of the Emirates Media Network and media advisor of DED said, “The Best competition is the first competition of its kind in the UAE, and we are pleased to work with the Ajman DED to achieve the noble goals of this initiative.”

“We invite all society members and the public to participate in nominating the best projects in Ajman, by following the Ajman DED account “@ajmanded” and the Ajman Vision account “@ajman_vision” on Instagram, writing the name of the project, and Tagging three friends. The winning project will be announced based on the number of votes through an electronic raffle at the end of the month, and one of the followers will win a cash prize,” added Mr.  Al Shehhi.
