The UAE Ministry of Climate Change & Environment has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Sharjah Urban Planning Council (SUPC) to implement a ‘unified and spatial guidance system’ through the exchange of postal code-related data.
Signed by HE Sultan Alwan, assistant undersecretary of the Regions Sector at the Ministry of Climate Change and HE Eng Khalid Al Ali, secretary general of the SUPC, the MoU outlines the collaboration between the two parties to ensure an efficient delivery of services and the attainment of common strategic objectives.
“The agreement confirms our dedication to the directives of our wise leadership and UAE Vision 2021, particularly with regards to the development of an integrated infrastructure that adheres to the highest world standards,” said Al Ali.
He added, “The postal code system is one of the premier projects that the Council has worked on to improve spatial guidance services in Sharjah. It will ensure the mobility of people and access to destinations with ease, providing world-standard services for the business sector. In this regard, SUPC has launched a smartphone App for the emirate’s postal code system that has an intuitive and user-friendly experience. This allows for the precise search of destinations across the emirate, using Google’s geographical information system.”
