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 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 in the creation of jobs in the services sector.

The WMF seeks to raise awareness and seek cooperative solutions to global manufacturing challenges through discovery, dialogue, and sharing of best practices between government, manufacturing, and innovation leaders.

The WMF encourages the virtuous cycle where manufacturing growth provides resources for the redistribution of wealth and well-being and, on the other hand, generates resources to improve the work force quality, to foster skills and education and to create high value jobs.

A socially aware approach of the manufacturing sector can thus improve economic prosperity and boost social inclusivity.
