The 7th MIT Pan-Arab Conference


The Arab world needs to create 75 million jobs in the coming decade to meet massive growth in youth populations which will soon enter the workforce. The region also faces pressure to diversify its economy away from reliance on hydrocarbon resources as oil demand growth begins to flatten in some developing markets. Manufacturing is one of a small number of key industries which — when done right — could offer scalable solutions to both of these challenges.

Join regional and global leaders to scrutinize and address the role of the manufacturing industry in providing employment and economic diversity in the Arab world.

  • Hear from experts in technology, policy, industry and finance and from MIT's manufacturing research leaders.

  • Discuss innovations and showcase solutions that have the potential to significantly impact today's global manufacturing challenges.

  • Understand how our educational, research and training institutions are preparing future leaders in innovation and applied technologies.

  • Learn, If you are an entrant to the manufacturing field, how you can lay and reinforce the foundations for a successful outcome on your investments.
