The Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT) has extended the nominations period for the second edition of the Make it in the Emirates (MIITE) Awards from April 26 to May 1, 2024. The extension aims to provide a larger number of companies from across the UAE’s industrial sector with an opportunity to participate.

 

The inaugural awards were held in 2023 during the second edition of the MIITE Forum, and celebrated visionaries, talent, innovators, industrialists, and sustainability pioneers that contribute to the UAE's transformation into a global manufacturing hub and strengthening its position among industrial countries.
