Why Attend?

 

Improving trade flows across Africa: Along with economic growth comes increased pressure on supply chain infrastructure, creating challenging business conditions and difficulty in matching supply with demand. Meeting that demand across Africa's diverse physical, economic, and political conditions requires creativity and flexibility with supply chain solutions.

Funding infrastructure projects in Africa: The region’s significant growth has taken place in a landscape where transport costs are considerably higher than in other regions and where the transport network is still underdeveloped. But today, a host of nations are lining up to invest in African infrastructure including the USA, Japan and of course China. The possibilities are limitless as improvements to infrastructure and connectivity will allow increased trade within Africa

The Business, Economic & Trade outlook for Africa: 2017 is a critical year for Africa. With Europe and America increasingly looking inwards, Africa is starting to look east to build economic partnerships. The main issue is whether the uncertainties the Continent has experienced in 2017 will bring about an upturn or a deeper downturn.

IMPROVING TRADE FLOW ACROSS AFRICA: TODAY'S REALITIES

Along with economic growth comes increased pressure on supply chain infrastructure, creating challenging business conditions and difficulty in matching supply with demand. Meeting that demand across Africa's diverse physical, economic, and political conditions requires creativity and flexibility with supply chain solutions.

IMPROVING TRADE FLOW ACROSS AFRICA: TOMORROW’S VISION

With the region’s increasing demand for fast-moving consumer goods, e-commerce entities are making great progress in a number of countries across the Continent. These businesses are however dependent on road infrastructure for delivery and a lot of improvement is needed to support the continuing growth of e-commerce.

AFRICA’S LOGISTICS CLUSTERS

Often developed with ports and airports, a host of supply chain players including transportation companies, 3PL’s, manufacturers, distributors, retailers and real estate developers are coming together to develop logistics clusters across the Continent.

Logistics clusters have become the focal point of large volumes of freight. This efficient movement of cargo leads to lower transportation costs and higher service levels which thereby attracts additional companies to the cluster and creates a positive cycle. Africa is in a prime position to harness and develop more logistics clusters and emulate some of the large industrial clusters from around the world such as creating its own Silicon Valley.
