KwaZulu-Natal’s manufacturing sector is the second largest in the country, after Gauteng Province. The manufacturing sector is geared for export, with nearly a third of South Africa’s manufactured exports being produced in KwaZulu-Natal.
Situated on the eastern seaboard of South Africa, the province of KwaZulu-Natal has direct access to both the Indian and Pacific Ocean rims. The region’s strategic geographical position on world trade routes provides effortless access to major global markets, such as South America, Europe and the Far East.
The annual Manufacturing Indaba Kwazulu-Natal brings together provincial manufacturers and businesses to explore growth opportunities, find out about the latest manufacturing incentives and trends, and provide a platform for networking and collaboration.
- Learn about incentives, investment and financing solutions available to help manufacturers
- Explore how KZN manufacturers can access new markets and export into Africa
- Understand how technology can help manufacturers innovate and improve their bottom line
The conference programme will include plenary sessions as well as breakaway debate sessions to unpack and encourage active participation at the event.
