Halcon contributes to the UAE's drive towards a smart industrial sector powered by advanced technologies
Sarah Al Amiri, UAE Minister of State for Advanced Technology, made a high-level visit to Halcon facilities at Tawazun Industrial Park in Abu Dhabi, accompanied by a delegation of senior officials from the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT).
During Al Amiri's tour of the facility, Halcon detailed how the company is helping secure a digital future through investments and its focus on operational excellence. It highlighted the organisational gains achieved to date and those projected for the future.
"It is exciting to see UAE-based companies like Halcon driving the country towards a smart industrial sector powered by advanced technologies," Al Amiri said.
"The integration of the Fourth Industrial Revolution solutions into our value and supply chains is critical to fostering a knowledge- and innovation-based economy, which will shape the next 50 years of the Emirates as we continue to cultivate a culture of innovation."
She added: "We recently announced the Fourth Industrial Revolution Programme, Industry 4.0, which aims to increase industrial production by 30 per cent, and industrial contribution to the local economy by Dh25 billion, by 2031. These objectives are only achievable through joint efforts between MoIAT and its partners in the public and private sectors."
Al Amiri said Halcon’s efforts help elevate the cutting-edge capabilities of the UAE’s defence industry.
