Smart Procurement World will be returning to Western Cape for the 7th time in 2020. The Western Cape region is committed to facilitating strategic links and market access for SMMEs within regional, national and global economies. The Smart Procurement World conference and Enterprise and Supplier Development Expo in Cape Town is a platform for this development to be activated.
“The City of Cape Town has been a proud sponsor of the Western Cape Smart
Procurement initiative since 2014. The integrated business model is strategically
aligned with the City’s transformation and economic development plans. The
procurement model also promotes access to market and training for SMMEs,
while providing them with a platform to showcase their products and services.
The programme promotes growth and stimulates the environment to improve
job creating opportunities. As a City, we are focused on creating an enabling
environment for supplier development. I am driven by the overarching objective
to make my portfolio the ‘Growth Directorate’ of the City. This means that we focus
our energy on attracting investment which creates jobs and leads to economic
growth” – Mayoral Committee Member for Economic Opportunities and Asset
Management, Alderman James Vos.
The 11th Annual Public Sector Supply Chain Summit looks at how SCM practitioners can successfully respond to new government policies and legislation.
This conference examines top trends in business and demonstrates how procurement, as a function can adapt to the changing dynamics in the age of AI.
