The central role of manufacturing within the global economic system is demonstrated by its capacity to trigger inclusive transformation and to have a multiplier effect on the increase of trade and on the creation of jobs in the service sector.

The World Manufacturing Forum is an open platform that aims to enhance and spread industrial culture worldwide, as a means to ensure economic equity and sustainable development.


The WMF promotes innovation and development in the manufacturing sector, with the fundamental goal of improving competitiveness in all nations through dialogue and cooperation among the manufacturing sector’s key players.

The WMF will pursue its goals by:

  • Supporting and influencing national and international industrial agendas

  • Providing a framework through which top-level companies, governments,

    academic institutions and social organizations can meet and exchange opinions, acting as a catalyst for finding innovative solutions to major global challenges

  • Disseminating knowledge through international and regional meetings and publications
