The ripple effects of the Covid-19 outbreak have highlighted the need for the UAE’s efforts to minimize its dependency on imports and boost the competitiveness of its manufacturing sector.

The UAE Government is focused on more than doubling the contribution of industrial manufacturing in line with Dubai Industrial Strategy 2030 and Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030.  Operation 300bn strategy aims to raise the industrial sector’s contribution to the GDP to AED 300 billion by 2031.

Make it in the Emirates is an initiative aimed at boosting industrial production, fortifying the national economy, encouraging innovation, and incorporating cutting-edge technology. The In-Country Value (ICV) National Program aids in the development of local industries, reinforces supply chains, reduces reliance on foreign imports, and generates new employment opportunities.

The 2nd UAE Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 Summit is dedicated to sharing best practices and bringing together leading government, public and private organizations, decision-makers, solution providers, and industry experts under one roof on 16 - 17 May 2023 in Dubai, UAE. It is the UAE’s foremost event committed to discussing the challenges faced, the future, and prioritising the manufacturing and industry sectors. This two-day summit is a platform for knowledge-sharing at the highest level to explore and exchange innovative strategies for advancing the industry's long-term development.
