Ajman DED launches second batch of new smart services
Represents the second installment of the '50 Electronic Smart Services' initiative
Thirteen new e-services form the brunt of the Ajman Department of Economic Development's push to highlight investment opportunities at this year's GITEX Technology Week 2017.
The new set of services represent the second installment of the department's '50 Electronic Smart Services' initiative, which aims to launch 50 new e-services by the end of the first quarter of 2018. Services offered fall under the remit of DED-Ajman's key divisions including Registration and Business Licenses Department, and the Directorate of Control and Consumer Protection. They include agent licensing, which includes issuance, legalizing and printing; renewal of services agent contract, which covers issuance and printing; renewal of business corporate contract; obtainment of an inspection warrant at the request of an establishment and inquiring on the status of an inspection conducted on any transaction.
Ajman is currently ranked 35th in the Ease of Doing Business in the region, and the move toward e-services aims to shift the Emirate toward a smart government model by 2021.
"Our new e-services contribute as an important platform for a strong start towards enhancing the ease of doing business, while also opening new horizons to encourage investors to make maximum use of the economic and investment capabilities available in Ajman, leading to a competitive economy that achieves sustainable development goals by 2021," says HE Ali Issa Al Nuaimi, Director General, DED-Ajman. "Our participation at GITEX Technology Week 2017 falls in line with our commitment to support the country's efforts to shift to a Smart Government model in order to make government services easier, faster and simpler, bringing happiness to the customers."
"No negative feedback has been reported so far," says Abdulaziz bin Hamdan Al Nuaimi, Head of Economic licenses, DED-Ajman, adding, "We always keep in mind of the comfort of the investor during his journey to obtain the necessary licenses. Therefore, we do everything that we can to make it easier for him during the procedures of issuing and renewing the business licenses.
