Manufacturing the Future.
South Africa has developed an established, diversified manufacturing base that has shown its resilience and potential to compete in the global economy. The South African manufacturing sector presents an opportunity to significantly accelerate the country’s growth and development by focusing on manufacturing operations and exporting South African products to the African market. The 2-day Manufacturing Indaba conference and exhibition, hosted in Africa’s largest manufacturing city, is the only African event of its kind and affirms government and industry’s strategic focus to revitalise and re-industrialise South Africa’s manufacturing sectors amidst intense challenges. Partnerships include the Department of Trade & Industry (the dti), the City of Ekurhuleni, the Manufacturing Circle, the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Department of Public Enterprises (DPE) and other leading manufacturing companies. The third annual Manufacturing Indaba takes place on 28 – 29 June 2016 at Emperors Palace, Ekurhuleni. The inaugural Small Business Indaba will take place on the 27th June at the same venue.
