All Day Online Conference & Expo
What is Made In Africa?
In 2020, Africa’s Supply Chain and Procurement Profession came together online for the first time in response to the New Tomorrow at the Africa Supply Chain in Action Conference (#ASCA2020). 986 Professionals from 44 African countries representing both private and public sector entities identified a common objective: to harness procurement for socio-economic growth. Buy Africa, for Africa.
Made in Africa will bring the entire African ecosystem together for a two-day high impact online programme. Purchasing decision-makers, policy makers, investors and local businesses from across the continent will be brought together to learn, engage and do business.
The intent is for this gathering to kickstart a movement that achieves measurable impact, access to market opportunities, and economic growth across industry sectors. There is no time like NOW for the whole continent to unite and work together to enable local business and cross-border trade.
A number of interventions, regulations and trade policies exist, as well as the introduction of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement however there is still a need to create a clear roadmap to connect the right decision and policy makers with relevant businesses and for trade linkages to be facilitated.
