The EU Tech Chamber Africa Alliance had a very stimulating webinar on Sep 21, 2022. The topic of this digital talk was, “Bridging Africa’s Advanced Manufacturing Gap”
Milton O. – Financial Controller – TechBridge Invest Africa shared his outstanding insights while presenting the perceptions and gaps in Africa’s advanced manufacturing. He said that a thriving manufacturing sector increases the number of stable, well-playing jobs leading to a robust economy of a nation.
He recommended that we have to invest in human capital, infrastructure, power, transport, logistics and research & development if we want to fill up Africa’s advanced manufacturing gaps.
Indulging into the discussion Piotr Barczak – Senior Policy Officer – EEB expressed his view: We countries including African countries have to look at the more independent in terms of resources, so as to reduce imports, but to increase the circulation of materials and economy inside the country.
Anthony Reid Harvey – Managing Director – Africa Prosperity Inc. defined advanced manufacturing beautifully: What is common to all definitions of advanced manufacturing is the need to improve existing products and processes. He further let the attendees know his recommendations specific to Ceramic advance manufacturing.
Promoted by The EU Tech Chamber and the Africa Alliance, this Digital Talk aimed to focus on transforming Africa’s manufacturing into a high-tech sector.
