Following our webinar held on 24 May 2021, corporate South African champions were asked to drive localization linked to the Economic Reconstruction and Recovery Plan.
These champions have shown their interest and commitment to further localize their respective supply chains.
To assist with this process, the Localisation Technical Working Committee has developed the Market Access Platform (MAP), a tool that will assist in achieving the set targets.
Therefore, the Business Localisation Technical Working Committee invites Champions, their alternates, and/or their Chief Procurement Officers and procurement teams to a webinar launching the Market Access Platform.
This exciting online platform supports and influences both localization and transformation. It offers corporates a one-stop shop to find vetted, high-performing, transformed suppliers, local service providers, and manufacturers across various industries.
Additional functions of the platform include allowing corporates to refer suppliers making them visible to other corporates, rating suppliers once goods are delivered, and publishing tender opportunities.
This creates much-needed market access opportunities for suppliers while mitigating the risks associated with sourcing from unknown entities.
