Dear Valued Stakeholder

The below invitation is sent on behalf of Proudly South Africa.

Proudly South African, the country’s official Buy Local advocacy campaign, together with the Nelson Mandela Foundation will be hosting a dialogue to address the private sector in respect of efforts to drive the Economic Reconstruction & Recovery Plan.

We will address how we can use local procurement as a stimulus for job creation and how our everyday decisions as corporate buyers and consumers have the power to change the economic future of the country, with each of us having a role to play.

While there is an undoubtedly important role that needs to be played by government, the role of the private sector is also critical. As such, there is a need to encourage greater levels of local procurement through companies’ supply and value chains and for companies to look beyond raw material inputs and extend local procurement to uniforms, stationery, crockery, detergents, vehicle fleets, etc required for the everyday running of the business.

We are inviting all Business leaders, CEOs, Supply Chain Managers, Business organisations, institutions and corporates in Mining, Financial Services, Retail, Educational, Medical and Agro-processing sectors as well as Trade union shop stewards as a route to employers and more.

Date: 16 November 2021
Time: 14h00 – 16h00
Platform: Zoom
