OPENING KEYNOTE | Innovation and Collaboration: The New Currency
Innovation and collaboration is not an either-or proposition. Africa’s trajectory depends on it. Collaboration will be the bedrock of the African continent’s digital transformation journey.

Before the Covid pandemic, the choir crucible of every organization was creativity. Post Covid, what leadership competency do you need more than any other in people today? And the answer would most certainly be innovative and smart collaboration. Innovation has become the single most important leadership competency in a world that is more volatile, more uncertain, and more complex than ever before. Africa's digital transformation is upon us, and with the dynamism, energy and strength of its people, largely due to its unique and growing youth demographic, the continent is an extremely important stakeholder in contributing to the development of innovative solutions. Is Africa is at the forefront of innovation?

H.E Prof. Dr. Ambassador Tal Edgars, Group Executive Chairman, GBSH Consult Group, Worldwide

FIRESIDE CHAT | Forecasting in a Crisis - Africa, Where do We Stand?
Has Africa been successful in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic? What risks are there to our supply chains and how do we mitigate them? Is the pharmaceutical regulatory system in Africa effective? Join Harriet as she chats to Saed about the burdens associated with substandard and falsified (SF) medical products and listen in as Saed gives practical insights.

Saed Nuh, Chairman of Medicines Regulatory Authority, Ministry of Health Development (MoHD), Somaliland

PANEL DISCUSSION | Collaboration, Policy, Regulation and the African Continental Free Trade Area

The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) will create the largest free trade area in the world, measured by the number of countries participating; 54 have signed and 40 African Union member states have ratified. The AfCFTA covers over a billion people with an estimated combined GDP valued at US $ 3.4 Trillion. It has the potential to lift 30 million people out of extreme poverty, due to the opportunities it can afford SMEs; responsible for more than 80% of Africa’s employment and 50% of its GDP. The efficacy of the agreement could be impeded by a lack of knowledge about which trade barriers will be affected by the changes. Other issues such as access to financing for export-oriented businesses and enterprises as well as physical and digital infrastructure challenges need to be identified for proper trade policy responses. The implementation plans contained in State parties’ AfCFTA strategies need to be SMART, innovative, and sustainable. What are the key strategic amendments to plans for the African countries' long-term growth agenda?

PANEL DISCUSSION | Professionalisation of Supply Chain Management, Talk Shop, or a Reality?
Professionalisation is a social process by which any trade or occupation transforms itself into a true profession of the highest integrity and competence. It is the creation of a group of professionals who can be trusted to deliver well and deliver true to high standards that are acceptable socially, economically, and ethically. Professionalisation is intended to ensure the continuity of growth in individuals while satisfying the needs of industry. Professionalisation is not nice to have, it is a must-have, yet the concept of professionalisation of supply chain management just continues as talk. Talk is cheap. This is not the time for standing on the sidelines, it is time to get in the game. Africa needs this now! In a profession that touches every aspect of our everyday lives, has the ability to provide a competitive advantage, and is the driving force behind our economy, can we really afford to just keep talking?

PRESENTATION | Impact of Climate Change on Supply Chains in Africa. Prepare and Adapt

Africa is at the frontline of intensifying climate risks. Negative impacts over Africa “will rise faster than the global average” (UN report). In order to harness Africa’s unique capabilities to prepare and adapt, we need to fully understand the basic science of climate change and the complexities of biodiversity loss. How do we, as Supply Chain Managers exercise our duty to be powerful influencers to help mitigate some of the consequences and create better, more resilient economies in the region?

CLOSING KEYNOTE PANEL | Preparing for Disruptions - The Power of Technology

Regarding supply chains and procurement, technology has changed the complete structure in which we work, from internal communications to physical processes. Poorly handled supply chain and procurement disruptions can ultimately lead to trouble for an otherwise well-prepared business. By improving your organisation's technology now—and building out your disaster preparedness plans—you can reduce the potential consequences of a disruption before it even occurs. What are some of the other changes and benefits technology has brought to the supply chain and procurement functions?

OPENING KEYNOTE | The Africa We Want - Without Collaboration Africa Will Not Prosper!

The COVID-19 pandemic will pass, but its effects on the way we work will last. Effective collaboration in the new normal will require thoughtful leadership and a willingness to fail, learn, and adapt quickly. Since the 1980s there has been talk of Africa rising, and it has, but with another billion citizens to be born over the next 3 decades, there is tremendous pressure to rise faster; in key areas such as education, infrastructure, healthcare and food security.

Join Michael as he presents a framework through which Africa can accelerate its growth, accommodate its growing population, and truly leverage its fast-growing market size and increasing stature in global trade, and within the geopolitical landscape generally.

Michael Sudarkasa, CEO, Africa Business Group, South Africa

KEYNOTE | Supply Chain 4.0 – Next Generation Digital Supply Chains

The Africa We Want: Without Collaboration Africa Will Not Prosper! Industry 4.0 creates a disruption and requires companies to rethink the way they design their supply chain. Besides the need to adapt, supply chains also have the opportunity to reach the next horizon of operational effectiveness, to leverage emerging digital supply chain business models, and to transform the company into a digital supply chain.

Join Dirk Karl as he presents an Industry 4.0 framework through which Africa can accelerate the evolution of traditional supply chains toward a connected, smart, and highly efficient supply chain ecosystem.

Dirk Karl, MTN Group Executive & Chief Procurement Officer, MTN Group, UAE

PRESENTATION | Developing an Internal Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) Maturity Framework

Following the initial implementation stage of a DDMRP system (DD Tech R+) there have been stages which naturally emerged as every country in CCBA initiated the journey. The challenges faced post implementation have put the various countries in different rates of adoption and efficiency of usage. As the strategic goal is to maximize the impact on Inventory Working Capital and Stock Availability, a way to measure where each country was in the journey arose for the purposes of benchmarking between all CCBA countries and driving all to the most advanced stage of DDMRP operation

Il y a deux régions (celle du l'Afrique de l'Ouest et l'Afrique de l'Est) qui utilisent la libre circulation depuis des années. C'est donc un mystère la raison pour laquelle il y a seulement 4 ratifications au côté continentale. Les concernes sécuritaires sont évidemment present, mais la publication de IOM (Organisation Internationale pour les Migrations) a constaté dans son publication de 2020 que la preuve est que les migrants Africains préfèrent rester dans le continent. Force est de constater que le protocole de la libre circulation doit etre ratifier par beaucoup plus de pays maintenant!

CLOSING KEYNOTE PANEL | The Procurement and Supply Chain SME Inclusion - An Empty Statement or an Important Strategic Concept?
Small and medium-sized enterprises contribute to strong, inclusive local economies and will play a key role in Africa’s Covid-19 recovery. However, too often their ability to access public procurement opportunities is hindered by procurement eco-systems that fail to acknowledge the challenges that SMEs confront, or the contribution they make. The question begs to be asked and answered: Why is it so hard to achieve meaningful change in this space?
