New solutions for the global financial crisis


Kenneth Brown, the Officer, National Treasury speaking at the leading industry event Smart Procurement World 2013, placed key emphasis on how “the Global Financial Crisis has placed significant pressure on private institutions to find new ways of earning adequate returns on shareholder investments or in the case of the public sector, to find better ways of achieving value for money.”

Following his eye-opening presentation, delegates to the 7th annual Smart Procurement World 2013 in Johannesburg realised that when considering the challenges in both the public and private sectors, it becomes apparent that neither are 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 to take place in Cape Town from the 5 -7 March 2014 at the CTICC.

The conference will offer 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 also see the Absa Enterprise Development Expo, where verified and qualified black owned SMME’s will be showcased by top corporates. Affording these business and procurement buyers to create valuable business linkages.
