Manufacturing Indaba heads to the Western Cape

The 3rd Manufacturing Indaba Western Cape will be hosted in Cape Town on the 22nd November 2017.  Manufacturing is the second biggest sector in the Western Cape and contributes about 15% to the South African manufacturing sector output. The province’s agro-processing sector has shown resilience during these tough economic times, and its renewables and green tech industries have received significant investments in the past five years.


SA manufacturing needs to empower small businesses

Small to medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) are the engine of economic growth and are essential for competitive and efficient economic growth. Research has shown that SMMEs are critical for poverty reduction and can play a particularly important role in developing countries. SMMEs are the largest provider of employment in most countries (especially of new job creation) and are a major source of technological innovation and new products.


Three goals for manufacturing growth

At the Manufactur­ing Indaba at Emper­ors Palace, Ekurhuleni on June 29th and 30th, Manufacturing Circle Chairperson Bruce Strong joined other key­note speakers to launch an important document entitled “Three goals to grow manufacturing: South Africa’s great­est opportunity for job-rich growth.”
