SCTDA also took the opportunity to launch its new website, detailing the information and services provided by the Authority in order to smoothly facilitate transactions and procedures with partners of the tourism and hotel sectors in the Emirate. As part of its strategy to meet the needs of the tourism sector according to the highest standards and stay up to date with technological advances, the Authority continually develops and renews electronic services, adds new services and electronic applications throughout the year.
