Established in July 2020, the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT) aims to boost the UAE’s industrial sector and increase its contribution to the GDP. The Office of the Minister of State for Advanced Technology, the Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA) and the Industry sector in the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure have been merged into the structure of the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology since then, and all authorities, responsibilities and duties have been transferred to the newly founded Ministry.
MoIAT develops laws and policies to establish a world-class industrial development framework to attract FDI and bright minds, enhance in-country value (ICV), foster entrepreneurship, create jobs, upskill local talent and boost exports of ‘Made in the Emirates.’ products.
From encouraging the establishment of industrial zones to building capacities in advanced technology, MoIAT accelerates industrial development to contribute to a diversified knowledge-based economy and achieve industrial self-sufficiency.
Also, Quality Infrastructure is considered a crucial component to the success of “Operation 300 Billion”, as the entire system falls under the supervision of the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology, upon the integration of the Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology within the Ministry's structure.
An integrated industrial ecosystem that leverages advanced technologies and Fourth Industrial Revolution solutions to contribute to building a sustainable, knowledge-based economy.
