These commitments are a part of a series of multi-billion-dollar agreements and initiatives announced at MIITE aimed at promoting economic self-sufficiency and attracting investment to the UAE. Eighty-two agreements were signed during MIITE, supporting Operation 300bn, a strategy aimed at increasing manufacturing value added to $81 billion by 2031.

Industrial projects and investments worth more than $5.44 billion were announced during MIITE, including a $12 million investment to launch UAE’s first microalgae producer. UK-based Levidian announced a $100 million investment in a new Regional Delivery Centre in Abu Dhabi, targeting $2 billion in revenues by 2030 and promising to create hundreds of jobs.

MoIAT launched the AI Innovation Program to help industrial companies integrate AI in their operations. The program is backed by $100 million of financing from Emirates Development Bank (EDB). EDB partnered with commercial banks to provide $272 million worth of co-lending to support industrial companies. Another initiative, Transform 4.0, was launched with the aim of creating 100 Industry 4.0 lighthouses over the next three-to-five years.

His Excellency Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, said: “The third edition of the Make it in the Emirates Forum marks a significant gathering of pace and momentum for the UAE’s industrial sector. In just three years, since the establishment of the ministry, the industrial sector’s contribution to GDP has grown 49% to AED 197 billion ($53.64). The country has emerged as a truly global hub for industrial investment and innovation, attracting some of the world's biggest names and best talents.

“The announcements made this week will enhance national resilience in key sectors such as energy, healthcare and food, but also create strong investment opportunities for companies seeking to unlock the new wave of value being created by Operation 300bn.”
