Addressing the conference, H.E. Dr. Matar Hamed Al Neyadi, Undersecretary in the Ministry of Energy and Industry UAE, said: “The steel and construction industries in the UAE have matured since their foundation decades ago, as is evident by the incredible projects and mega-structures completed across the nation. This maturation presents a host of new opportunities for both sectors. These include increasing international exports, enhancing sustainable manufacturing and construction, and developing innovative smart technologies that will positively impact the steel and construction sectors.”
 
“Looking ahead to 2030 and beyond, regional investments in hospitality, healthcare, education and infrastructure are likely to continue on an ever-growing scale. Steel and construction industries are well positioned to take advantage of this opportunity to continue contributing to the region’s long-term economic prosperity and diversification.

“Looking to the future and the ongoing global decarbonization effort, the steel and construction industries will play a critical role in enabling the emissions reductions outlined in the Paris Agreement. As an industry, we have a great opportunity to work hand-in-hand with governments and international organizations to share best practices, enhance sustainability and develop cutting-edge smart technologies that will, for example, facilitate the construction of Zero Energy Buildings. This will allow the steel and construction industries to remain at the forefront of global economic growth for decades to come,” added Eng. Al Remeithi.
