The Global Manufacturing and Industrialization Summit (GMIS) has signed four Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with knowledge partners, recognizing the role of international collaboration and sustainability in the global manufacturing industry.

The agreements were signed with the Confederation of Employers and Industries of Spain (CEOE), the Confederation of Zimbabwe Industries (CZI), the Manufacturing Association of Israel (MAI), and the National Industry Confederation of Brazil (CNI) to promote collaboration efforts through workshops, webinars, and bilateral exchanges.

The MoUs affirms GMIS role as a collaborative international platform for fostering industrial growth, advanced technology adoption, and sustainable economic diversification.

“We are thrilled to partner with global manufacturing associations, working together towards building smarter, and more resilient manufacturing capabilities by enabling local industry leaders to share best practices and deliver cutting-edge innovative solutions. Coming together furthers individual capabilities and strengthens global cooperation. These partnerships play a very important role within our ecosystem and alongside our annual GMIS.”
