@MoIATUAE on X

The third edition of the "Make It in the Emirates Forum", organised by the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT) in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) and ADNOC Group, began on Monday in Abu Dhabi.

Under the theme Invest. Innovate. Grow. the forum features local and international participation, including senior government decision-makers and officials, as well as CEOs, entrepreneurs, investors, industrialists, experts, innovators, and representatives of financial institutions.

The edition builds on the success of the previous two, which generated around AED 120 billion worth of local procurement opportunities in priority sectors such as pharmaceuticals, energy, telecommunications, space, healthcare, and food and beverages.

Opportunities include 1,400 products available for local manufacturing, which are identified to enhance industrial resilience and self-sufficiency by supporting import substitutions.

The forum will feature a series of panel discussions exploring the UAE's industrial strategy, Operation 300bn, AI integration in industry, the UAE's ambitions to attract investments in the space sector, and how green technology can be deployed to decarbonise industry. There will also be sessions on sustainable manufacturing and the convergence of industries to accelerate smart mobility.
