The MoU was signed at the International Defense Exhibition and Conference (IDEX 2019), which is currently being held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC) from the 17th to the 21st of February.

It also entails the exchange of expertise between the two organizations to better facilitate the development of state-of-the-art products and create opportunities through training programs aimed at developing local knowledge in different areas of production. Moreover, Barij Munitions and Emirates Steel plan to explore the possibility of joint projects and investments that enhance the productivity and capabilities of local manufacturers.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Arafat Saleh Al Yafei, General Manager of Barij Munitions, said: 'Strengthening the local manufacturing sector is one of the key strategic objectives of Barij Munitions.

Promoting local companies not only helps in developing local expertise but also contributes to the national economy. Our partnership with Emirates Steel is a testament to our commitment to strengthening the UAE's domestic defense industry. We have set out clear and deliberate plans to increase our future production capacity in line with domestic and international requirements.

Thanks to the visionary leadership of the UAE, and our efforts, Barij Munitions has achieved great success in a short period. We are committed to enhancing our leadership position by building great partnerships and promoting innovation in every aspect of our business.” 

Engineer Saeed Ghamran Al Rumaithi, Chief Executive Officer of Emirates Steel Company, said, “This partnership is rooted in our shared vision of enhancing the UAE's position as a global industrial hub. Such collaborations play a crucial role in supporting the government's strategy to create a sustainable and diversified economy.

We look forward to working with Barij Munitions in the fields of rebar and ammunition manufacturing with the overarching aim of strengthening local production capabilities within the defense sector.”
