ABU DHABI, 22nd September, 2022 (WAM) — Emirates Steel Arkan this week took part as the diamond sponsor of the 2022 Annual Meeting of the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) which took place at the ADNOC Business Center in Abu Dhabi between 19-23 September.
Standardisation plays a key role in Emirates Steel Arkan’s strategy for diversifying its revenue sources and increasing international exports. The Group’s support of the ISO meeting will help facilitate dialogue around international standards and their role in addressing global challenges.
Group CEO of Emirates Steel Arkan Saeed Ghumran Al Remeithi said, “This year, we increased the number of our export markets to over 60, with half of our steel output now going to customers all over the world, each with their own product specifications. Managing the quality of our product range is critical to the success of our business and only viable through the application of internationally recognised standards.
“Decarbonisation is another factor which demands the application of new standards. Standardising decarbonisation potentials in our industry would support the decarbonisation of energy-intensive industries. That is why we are proud to be a diamond sponsor of this event.”
He added, “The UAE’s hosting of the ISO event underlines its international reputation in standardisation and highlights the country’s role as a leading global industrial hub and trusted industrial partner of choice. By hosting this year’s ISO annual meeting, the UAE has shown its commitment to implementing the top international standards and supporting the national economy by establishing a new era of excellence and quality.”
Organised by the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT), the event will take place in the presence of Sarah bint Yousif Al Amiri, Minister of State for Public Education and Advanced Technology and Ulrika Francke, President of ISO.
