KennethBrown.jpgThe global financial crisis has placed significant pressure on corporates to find new ways of earning adequate returns on shareholder investments and in the case of the public sector, to find better ways of achieving value for money, said Kenneth Brown, Chief Procurement Officer for National Treasury, speaking at the industry event Smart Procurement World 2013.

Considering the challenges in the public and private sectors, it becomes apparent that neither is achieving the best return on each Rand spent.

In order to create awareness of these challenges and to find state-of-the-art solutions, Smart Procurement World is proud to announce the roll out of our first regional conference and exhibition, taking place in Cape Town from 5 to 7 March 2014 at the CTICC.

The conference offers strategy and innovation for all in the procurement and supply chain function. Our top-class speakers will address supply chain management reform, supplier relationships and development, organisational efficiency as well as many other relevant topics.

An exciting partnership with Western Cape Government and Absa will see the Absa Enterprise Development Expo, where verified and qualified black-owned SMMEs will be showcased by top corporates, affording business and procurement buyers an opportunity to create valuable business linkages.
