Manufacturing East Africa is borne from the success of the Manufacturing Indaba conference & exhibition which is hosted annually in the City of Ekurhuleni, South Africa. There has been a call from South African manufacturers to expand and to sell their products and services into Africa and to explore business partnerships and synergies with a focus towards regional integration and trade in the East Africa region.
The opportunity for companies based in East Africa will be to explore purchasing products and services from South Africa and developing new trading business partners, which will provide added benefits including:
-South African manufacturers are keen to establish partnerships and new working relationships in East Africa and the opportunity exists for East African companies to become the local partner to the expanding South African manufacturer;
-Explore business linkages and opportunities to develop agencies within the East African market;
-Explore how East African companies can in turn sell products and services to the South African manufacturers;
-Develop additional markets to grow the East African manufacturers, as well as to buy more products into the East African market; and
-To explore how localization in an East African context can take place with added regional trade opportunities.
The inaugural 2017 event is anticipated to host 40 delegates and 20 speakers and is brought to you with the full support of the South African Department of Trade & Industry.
