2019 PARTNERS

STRATEGIC PARTNER

Government has deployed a range of complementary and integrated measures to grow the economy and create jobs. The latest Industrial Policy Action Plan (IPAP) 2014/15 – 2016/17 is one of the key pillars of this broader approach. It builds on the National Industrial Policy Framework (NIPF) and represents the sixth annual iteration of the first IPAP launched in the 2007/08 financial year.

Each year,the dti launches a revised three-year rolling IPAP with a 10-year outlook in a context of rapid economic change and significant global uncertainty. This has proved to be a robust formula, which allows continual scaling up of interventions and sufficient flexibility to respond to change. Just as many of today’s successful industrial firms have built up their capacities through a process of learning by doing, the latest version of IPAP clearly demonstrates the dti’s commitment to constantly refine and improve on the design and implementation of its industrial policy.

IPAP 2014/15- 2016/17 is the product of careful analysis of the latest trends in the global and regional industrial policy space and a result of the continuous search for optimal policy coherence within Government, between government departments and across a full range of stakeholders and social partners.

STRATEGIC PARTNER

The Manufacturing Indaba is in a strategic partnership with the Manufacturing Circle to deliver an event that aims to improve, grow and develop the South African manufacturing industry sector.

The Manufacturing Circle interacts with government and other stakeholders in order to review, debate and help formulate policies, which will have a positive impact on South Africa’s manufacturing base.

The Manufacturing Circle is made up of a number of South Africa’s leading medium to large manufacturing companies from a wide range of industries. Some of the members are leading South African exporters of manufactured goods to markets around the globe, others are locally based and locally focused companies competing with the best in the world. There is one common denominator among them and that is a passion for manufacturing coupled with a fervent belief that for South Africa to be economically strong, its manufacturing sector must be strong. A strong and developing manufacturing sector will drive the creation of skilled and semi-skilled jobs in the South African economy.
