Over 30% of government’s indicators rely on results of Ajman Census

The Ajman Census 2016 will significantly contribute towards ensuring sustainable, all around growth, as envisaged in Ajman Vision-2021, Saeed Saif Al Matrooshi, Secretary-General of the Executive Council of Ajman and Director General of Ajman Census 2016, has said.

The Ajman Vision-20121 aims at developing a “happy society and building a green economy, as inspired by governmental efforts, consistent with the spirit of the Union.”

Praising those who sponsored the Ajman Census, he said the immense support they extended would help translate the enthusiastic efforts undertaken by the government, as well as the private sector, to carry out this important national project.

On behalf of H.H. Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince of Ajman and Chairman of the Executive Council, and Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of Municipality and Planning Department of Ajman and Head of the Supreme Committee of Ajman Census, Al Matrooshi thanked all the sponsors and others who contributed in accomplishing the first phase.

He urged them to continue playing a similar role during the next phase, too, as the project is promoted. There is need to publicise its objectives and raise awareness about its significance, as it will enable decision-makers to formulate informed plans for the future, carry out projects and develop new initiatives, in addition to identifying the needs of the population.

Speaking during a meeting with representatives of the sponsors, held in the presence of Naser Al Dhafri, Executive Director of Planning and Member Support Sector at the Ajman Chamber; Marawan Al Mazroui of Maz Ind, key sponsor of Ajman Census; Sameh Sharif of Al Nuaimi Motors, the project’s success partner, Al Matrooshi explained that the census will help determine the performance of various government departments, as per the government indicators launched by Sheikh Ammar Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown prince of Ajman. The project is expected to help gather data for almost 35 percent of those indicators.

“All of us should cooperate to ensure the success of the next phase by promoting the “self-counting” option, asking families to fill in the data online and dispense with the visit of an enumerator,” Al Matrooshi said.

This will enable a family to furnish the data online at a time of its choosing, and will cut down on time and effort spent in the enumeration work, he added, noting that the project’s schedule will be announced within weeks.

Addressing the meeting, Al Dhafri said, “Sponsoring such an important strategic project is a national duty, aimed at achieving the emirate’s and Ajman Chamber’s objectives to ensure sustainability and growth of the economic sector in the emirate.”

Also, Marawan Al Mazroui praised those who contributed to the project, stressing that sponsoring the Ajman Census and involving the private sector in national projects will generally boost the economic and social development in the emirate, especially since Maz Ind has investments in health, education and other sectors.

He added, “Being the key sponsor of Ajman Census reflects Maz Ind’s CSR values and its keenness to contribute towards major national projects.”

Al Mazroui further praised the keen interest that the wise leadership takes to ensure the success of all sectors through such vital initiatives and projects.

Meanwhile, Sameh Sharif stressed the eagerness of Al Nuaimi Motors to contribute to the Ajman Census, noting that the data thus collated will significantly help all sectors in the emirate. He also stressed the role played by the private sector in promoting the project through various means of communication.
