The joint Lower House panel approved the bill after it held intensive discussions on a number of clauses referred from the Senate, with the aim of endorsing legislation attractive to investors that seeks to simplify procedures for issuing or renewing licenses, joint committee head MP Khair Abu Sailik said while chairing its meeting on Wednesday.

According to a press statement, the deputies emphasized the importance of developing legislative amendments that contribute to addressing obstacles that hinder the GAM’s work and develop strategies to raise its efficiency, lauding the GAM’s e-transformation drive in the process of executing citizens’ transactions.

With this piece of legislation, MPs hope to regulate professions within the GAM; identify the duties, responsibilities, powers within the GAM’s jurisdiction; and to attract investments.
