Sheikh Mohammed Al Sharqi expressed his appreciation for the great support that His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, UAE Federal Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Fujairah, has provided for the Fujairah Census Project. The Ruler’s support is based on confidence in the pivotal role the project will play in creating constructive plans for the future and developing strategic policies that serve all vital sectors in the emirate, ensuring its prosperity and growth, in line with the UAE’s comprehensive development vision and ambitious future directions.
The Crown Prince stressed the importance of the cooperation of all individuals and segments of the community, including citizens, residents, and companies, with census delegates and field researchers to provide them with accurate information. This, in turn, will enable the project to achieve its comprehensive goals and ensure the best results.
The Crown Prince added, “This project is an integral part of the Fujairah Government’s approach and development plan, which includes planning, setting policies, and measuring growth and demographics in the emirate. The outputs of the project will directly contribute to improving the lives of individuals, supporting government institutions in the decision-making process, and fulfilling the vision of the Emirate of Fujairah and its sustainable development plans.”
The Fujairah Statistics Centre will implement the first phase of census data collection using advanced technologies and adhering to international best practices in the second quarter of this year (May 2023). The second phase of the census, which involves actual population enumeration, is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2024. Teams of field workers will visit all regions around the emirate, including buildings, residences, households, and facilities in both phases.
