The importance of manufacturing in Africa
It's no kept secret that the African economy is in a fragile state. Poverty, lack of education, cultural segregation and financial inequality are some of the key factors that contribute to the instability of the African economy and because of this, for many the future seems bleak. It is therefore our responsibility as consumers to ensure that our people are exposed to equal opportunity and by purchasing locally manufactured products and supporting African vendors we can do this.
Locally manufactured goods promote economic growth by accessing opportunities for development through job creation, skills development and prospects for a better quality of life. Your contribution can uplift communities, create recognition for talented artisans and create awareness around the issue. Be a part of the change and support local business.
