Experts from 4 Countries Attend Uruguay’s Industry Week

MONTEVIDEO – High technology experts from Argentina, Spain, the United States and Uruguay will participate in the Nov. 14-18 Industry Week in Montevideo, an event that aims to promote the adaptation of Uruguay’s textile industry to the latest advances in technology, officials said on Tuesday.

During the gathering of business leaders and professionals, experts will discuss digital production of fabrics, robotics, artificial intelligence, the Internet of things, agro-industry, audiovisual advances and nanotechnology, among other topics.

Industry, Energy and Mining Minister Carolina Cosse told reporters that the event’s purpose was to educate Uruguayans about innovations in industrial technology and raise “awareness” about their country’s opportunities.

“Industrial activity is complicated because the situation is complicated. That’s why it is important to publicize a little-known industry. We are gathering all these valuable resources to make them known to a traditional industry so improvements and advances can transform the textile industry,” Cosse said.

The industrial sectors most affected by the current economic and international situations are food, dairy, automobiles and plastics, the minister said, adding that the government must take steps to “counter the complex regional trends.”

Industrial Week “is not an end in itself. It is a beginning in the construction of a collective focus on the future. In developed countries, these technologies arrived to stay and became what we call future industry,” Cosse said.

Industrial Week, an event that is free for visitors, expects to attract the general public and, in particular, young entrepreneurs.
