Why Africa?

With shutdowns of factories in China, increased orders, reduced demands and delays in delivering of products, the African market has gone through major loss which also impacted the economic growth in Africa.

However, despite facing such uncertainties, Africa is preparing itself to deal with the challenges posed by Covid 19 by adopting technological solutions as well as focusing on its pharma manufacturing sector which in turn would be improving other manufacturing sectors in the continent.

The Manufacturing IT Summit: Africa will foster conversations on overcoming legacy obstacles, helping organizations become truly agile.
