The UAE government is determined to pursue its economic diversification program by promoting the manufacturing sector to reduce its reliance on income earned from the export of hydrocarbons. It is aiming to increase the contribution of the manufacturing sector to overall GDP from 11 per cent to 25 per cent by 2025. Thus this sector is strategic and very important from the business point of view.

Why Make in UAE Summit?

The manufacturing industry is evolving rapidly and entering an era, which is propelled by disruptive forces of change. The emergence and convergence of complex new materials, processes and technologies – like big data analytics, advanced robotics, the internet of things and additive manufacturing – are shaping the economics of production and redefining business models. Manufacturing companies that are undergoing this profound transformation and are now visualizing a future state for the manufacturing industry. The future that will change the rules of competition, redefine how work will be performed, how companies will be organized, and how leadership must lead. We call this future state as MFG 4.0 To succeed in the MFG 4.0 era, manufacturing executives will have to be tech savvy; comfortable with decentralized, collaborative organizational structures; and able to deal with rising complexity as pervasive connectivity drives the creation of more and more information about every aspect of the business. This powerful and unique summit will explore what leadership skills and competencies will be necessary in the years ahead.
