UAE’s Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology launches Make it in the Emirates Lab

In collaboration with Procter and Gamble, Access SMEs programme provides essential training in operations, quality, supply chains, and tools for reaching global markets

The Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT) has inaugurated the Make it in the Emirates Lab, a new public-private partnership that provides corporate training to small and medium-sized firms (SMEs) in the industrial sector. Select national students will also be allowed to participate in the training, which will help to support and promote their future contributions to this sector.

In collaboration with Procter and Gamble, MoIAT kicked off the Access SMEs programme within the wider Make it in the Emirates Lab.

The training modules have been developed by P&G and are designed to develop core capabilities in areas such as operations, quality, supply chain, sourcing, marketing, sales and finance and accounting, as well as providing companies with the tools to access local, regional, and global markets.

The Access SMEs programme and the wider Make it in the Emirates SMEs Lab are both in line with Operation 300bn, the Ministry’s 10-year national strategy that aims to empower and expand the industrial sector to become a key driver of the UAE economy.

Omar Al Suwaidi, under-secretary at Ministry of Industry & Advanced Technology, said: “Knowledge transfer is a critical component of the National Strategy for Industry and Advanced Technology, Operation 300bn, transforming our industrial sector into a modern, technologically advanced and globally competitive engine of economic growth. The Access SMEs training module will deliver practical, market-tested advice and guidance to our SMEs and select students – covering the likes of supply-chains and procurement, data analytics and lean manufacturing.”

Access SMEs will target approximately 20 industrial SMEs and 10 senior Emirati students in the programme. It is expected that the Lab will reach 100 SMEs in total in its first year. It is also expected to accommodate approximately 50 students who will benefit from the training annually.

In addition to P&G, further MoUs are in process with a number of key national and international industrial companies as part of this best-in-class corporate training. The SMEs Lab will also offer consultancy services provided directly by MoIAT and via partner companies, with sessions devoted to the practical support offered by Emirates Development Bank and the National In-Country Value programme.
