Details

Manufacturers play a crucial role in the exponentially evolving world economy. They generate wealth for investors, pay taxes to governments and employ half a billion people worldwide. They are also facing challenges from rapid transformations in technology and global value chains that are driven by the fluctuating impact of the digital revolution, automation and geopolitical reordering. These challenges can no longer be resolved in isolation, they require a global solution – a solution that will also connect manufacturing closer to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), for the benefits of businesses as well as the communities they serve.

The Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS) was established in 2015 as an industry association to build bridges between manufacturers, governments & NGOs, technologists, and investors in harnessing the Fourth Industrial Revolution’s transformation of manufacturing to the regeneration of the global economy. A joint initiative by the United Arab Emirates and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), GMIS is a platform that presents the manufacturing sector with an opportunity to contribute towards global good, working to the benefit of all.

GMIS is the world’s first cross-industrial and cross-functional platform that offers a voice and venue for leaders to transform manufacturing, encourage greater investment in capabilities, foster innovation and drive global skills development. Uniting influential delegates, including visionary world leaders, expert industry CEOs and specialist researchers and academics, the summit aims to place manufacturing at the heart of economic regeneration and government policymaking, utilising it as a tool for global cooperation and collaboration.
