All nations require and rightly aspire to efficient industrial bases to meet changing needs in a globalised world. South Africa has developed an established and diversified manufacturing base that has shown its resilience and potential to compete in the global economy.
Collaboration and investments by both the public and private sectors in manufacturing is essential for regional and continental growth. The aim of the annual Manufacturing Indaba, and its provincial roadshows, is to bring together manufacturing business owners, industry leaders, government officials, capital providers and professional experts to explore opportunities and grow their manufacturing operations.
