The amended broad-based black economic empowerment codes of good practice can still create advantages for businesses if approached with a proper long-term strategy and commitment from the industry and government departments.
How multinationals and other organisations can view the new Codes as a competitive advantage and engage in supplier and corporate collaboration will be discussed at Smart Procurement World Western Cape.
The event takes place from 5 – 7 March 2014 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC).
The Smart Procurement World agenda has been released – download the brochure.
Sessions at the upcoming event will highlight issues such as:
• Why the practice of incubating suppliers will only succeed with a collaborative model.
• Ensuring better efficiency in the supply chain through supplier relationships.
• Quality in enterprise development. What has gone wrong and how do we address it?
• Collaborative partnerships between banks, corporates, SMEs and business development service providers.
A special highlight for the event is the codes conversation with Makhosazana Seate, Director Procurement Transformation and Verification Department of Trade & Industry as she unpacks this anticipated piece of legislation that has come from government in 2013 and what this means for industry and economy.
