The Big Local Content Debate
The statement: This house believes that local content legislation in Africa has failed to deliver on its promises
This debate offers the opportunity to hear from senior figures who are dealing with local content challenges every day as well as leading policy makers who both set the framework and expect to see progress on Local Content.
Local content legislation is in place or being debated in more than 20 African countries and has been around in some markets for over 40 years. Now more than ever the right approach to Local Content has severe implications across your business, especially the bottom line.
Businesses operating in Africa today, across sectors, are constantly battling to strike the right balance between the need to source more locally - whilst building capacity and creating jobs - with the commercial challenges of running a business. Getting this right will often decide your ability to operate profitably over the long run, but there is no proven model.
Which is why it remains important that lessons learned are shared, local content policy is understood and the way forward is agreed.
Our team of expert panellists will lend their considerable knowledge and experience to addressing this timely question, marshalled by the Editor of African Business, Lanre Akinola. We also invite you to contribute to ensure that all opinions and viewpoints are considered.
Our panellists include:
Rosalind Kainyah, Founder & CEO, Kina Advisory
Sandy Stash, VP Sustainability, External Affairs and Safety, Tullow Oil
Peter Kasanda, Partner, Clyde & Co.
Neema Lugangira,Ag. Director of Local Content for Tanzania
Dr Michael Warner, Director & Founder, Local Content Solutions
With spaces limited, please RSVP by June 1st to secure your place.
