His Excellency Dr. Sultan Al-Jaber stressed the importance of cooperation between the various parties concerned with the growth and progress of the industrial sector, including government agencies responsible for legislation and laws regulating the industrial sector, industrial companies, technologists, and investors, in order to participate in the global dialogue aimed at improving the role of the industrial sector and enhancing its contribution to achieving sustainable development and economic prosperity, in both developed and developing countries.
Kicking-off preparations for #GMIS2021, His Excellency Dr. Sultan Al-Jaber, UAE Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, and LI Yong , Director General of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), held a virtual meeting to align on the key strategic priorities for the fourth edition of the Summit.
LI Yong, Director General of UNIDO, said: “UNIDO is pleased to receive the support and be in a strong partnership with the United Arab Emirates in our endeavour to promote inclusive and sustainable industrial development. This GMIS partnership with Dubai EXPO enables us to reach a global audience of policymakers, private sector companies, research partners and civil society organizations.
“The future of manufacturing must be inclusive, one that leaves no one behind. A future that creates feasible mechanisms, allowing women, young people, SMEs and developing countries to claim a fair stake in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. GMIS 2021 will be a catalyst for transformative ideas and actions.”
Activities at the fourth edition of the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (#GMIS2021) will be held at EXPO Dubai Exhibition Centre for an entire week from November 22-27, starting with discussions at the Summit on November 22 & 23 that will take place across several formats, including keynote addresses, panel discussions, fireside chats, and interviews with some of the industry’s most prominent leaders, followed by working groups, interactive workshops, youth sessions, and activities related to the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit legacy initiatives, such as the Mohammed bin Rashid Initiative for Global Prosperity. Throughout the week, #GMIS2021 will also run the UAE’s first technology-driven manufacturing exhibition where the latest innovations and solutions in the field of technology and industry will be showcased.
The #GMIS2021 agenda will dive into how the adoption of core technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, and the fifth generation of wireless network technology (5G) are central to transforming the future of manufacturing, and will explore the many possibilities that unfold with the seamless integration of machines and humans as well as the benefits of enhanced mobility across people, processes, and the industrial value chain and how this can contribute to a digitally inclusive, interconnected, and sustainable future.
The Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit was previously held in the UAE (#GMIS2017), Russia (#GMIS2019), and Germany (#GMIS2020 – virtually), and brought together Heads of State, Ministers, and Chairs and CEOs of some of the world’s largest organisations. #GMIS2021 will once again offer a voice and venue for leaders to share their experiences and knowledge while highlighting opportunities for investments in technology, innovation, and industrialisation.
