Qatar’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MOCI) along with the Qatar Development Bank (QDB) launched the country’s Advanced Manufacturing Hub (AMHUB) in partnership with the World Economic Forum (WEF).
The cooperation seeks to transform Qatar into an advanced economic and industrial hub by enhancing its international connections network.
The Assistant Undersecretary for Industry Affairs at the Ministry of Commerce and Industry Mohamed Hassan Al Malki highlighted the importance of this platform for Qatar’s heads of industrial institutions, major national companies, and owners of small and medium companies.
“The industrial sector stands at the forefront of Qatar’s priorities in terms of development, as it represents the main pillar of diversifying the national economy,” Al Malki said in a statement. “Moreover, the industrial sector comprises a key element for achieving self-sufficiency in the State, and shaping younger generations’ future, in line with the National Vision 2030.”
Qatar’s AMHUB is one of 13 platforms that were launched by WEF all over the world. Their aim is to enhance the future of the industrial sector internationally through knowledge sharing and exchange of experiences, while empowering manufacturers to tackle challenges such as manpower issues, government policies, and environmental challenges.
The AMHUB consists of members of the public and private sectors, businessmen, and SME founders, in addition to a number of elite academic institutions that study the opportunities and challenges the industrial sector faces.
