Dr. Al Falasi was briefed on the important tourism activities that the Emirate is offering to strengthen its status as a tourist destination that attracts visitors and tourists from all over the world, as well as the department’s role in shedding light on Ajman’s cultural and tourist properties, as well as the unique tourism experiences it offers to its visitors.

In addition, the Ajman Tourism Development Department (ATDD) has announced that its centralized self-classification system, a unique integrated digital system that allows hotels and hotel apartments to identify their units according to the latest ATDD requirements, will be launched in July 2021.

This framework is a platform based on reliable reporting and data that provides a real-time summary of a company’s performance, according to its classification category in the Emirate of Ajman.

The system’s first phase of implementation will focus on hotels and hotel apartments, with plans to expand into other industries later.

The department also announced plans to develop the Ajman Culture Centre, which will be tasked with promoting tangible and intangible cultural heritage, such as literature, audiovisual arts, design, and digital creative products, as well as bolstering cultural and artistic development, cultivating talents.

It will also be in charge of drafting laws, policies, and regulations to improve Ajman’s cultural sector’s productivity and accelerate its sustainable growth by enhancing cooperation with local and international public and private entities.

ATDD Director-General Mr. Saleh Mohamed Al Geziry stated that the launch of new projects and the construction of museums would strengthen Ajman’s status as a leading tourism destination for both local and international tourists.
