Other projects being developed by Shurooq include The Heart of Sharjah, one of the most significant tourism and heritage projects in the UAE as well as the Chedi Khorfakkan Resort, which includes the development of the Khorfakkan Corniche.

Shurooq has also recently announced plans to develop Al Hisn Island in Dibba Al Hisn, with the project to include a large water canal and a number of restaurants, cafes, and cinemas with stunning views on the canal, as well as parks, children's play areas and various other amenities. In addition the Authority will also be redeveloping the landmark previously known as "Al Jazeera Park", Sharjah's oldest tourist destination, which is situated on an island within Khalid Lagoon as well as a new leisure project at Al Badayer.

Added Al Sarkal: "Ultimately, our participation will be aimed at promoting the various investment opportunities related to the tourism and travel sector in Sharjah, introducing the emirate as an attractive tourism and investment destination, as well as at strengthening economic cooperation with participating delegations from all over the world."

Shurooq was established in 2009 with the aim of achieving social, cultural, environmental and economic development on the basis of Sharjah's distinct Arab and Islamic identity, and to encourage investment by adopting the best international standards in providing quality services that help attract investors from the region and around the world.

Shurooq's key mission is to provide facilities and incentives to help overcome obstacles facing investment activities in the emirate, evaluate tourism-related infrastructure projects, and lay down the necessary plans to complete such projects.
