Briefing: From resource extraction and investments to consumer products and services, China’s presence in Africa and its role in the continent’s development can be observed in various facets of the economy. With China’s continued role as a key supply chain partner in the mining, industrial and retail sectors, supply chain managers of companies engaging with or planning to engage with China need to understand the realities and inherent complexities of dealing with the country and, specifi cally, the individual suppliers. The lure of eff ectively dealing with capacity constraints and minimising costs are strong incentives for reaching out to a low-cost country solution; however, this must be tempered with a robust understanding of the market, proper supply chain and logistics management, as well as developing a solid relationship with your supplier. This session will include an examination of actual procurement case studies that were inherently complex or that experienced difficulties in the process of execution.
