Proudly South African kicks off 2019 with East London Forums

As part of its national awareness campaign for increased local procurement in both the public and private sectors, Proudly South African will kick off the 2019 calendar with two forums in East London at the end of this month.

Focusing on the private sector and the benefits of increasing levels of local procurement through the entire value chain, Proudly South African will present a business networking forum on 30th January taking the opportunity to connect with existing member companies in the province and with any company interested in learning more about the benefits of becoming part of the movement. The focus for SMEs here will be on the financial and non-financial development programmes available to them from both the private and public sector.

As the largest procurer of goods and services in the country, government has legislated local procurement levels for certain items under the Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act and Proudly SA will address public sector procurement and supply chain officials on their roles and responsibilities in this regard on 29th January.

Both events will take place at The Venue, Hemingways Casino in East London with registration from 08h30. Attendance is free of charge, but delegates are requested to register beforehand.

Public Sector Procurement Forum, 29 January RSVP
