With the theme ‘Unleashing the Manufacturing Potential of East Africa’ it will be held on September 1st and 2nd 2015 at the Speke Resort in Kampala.
According to a press release, ‘the Summit seeks to address existing gaps in the policy and business environment by bringing together key manufacturers, supply industries, wholesalers and retailers as well as policy makers from the East African region and beyond’.
This is in response to the realisation that most manufacturing industries are highly technical, cost-sensitive and economies of scale bearing investments that are strongly dependent on an effective business environment and efficient supply and downstream industries.
While in consequence value chains and sales markets stretch across boundaries, most policies and business networks tend to be still localized.
The Summit shall cover both industry specific topics as well as cross-cutting thematic areas, with parallel sessions to provide participants with an opportunity to freely choose sessions that are of most interest to their current operations and future plans.
