The primacy of manufacturing in unlocking Africa's potential

Join Lord Michael John Hastings for ‘Lunch with our Leaders’ on LinkedIn

This Thursday by 14:00 CAT, KPMG Africa will be facilitating a Q&A session on our LinkedIn platform – KPMG Africa Lunch with our Leaders (LWOL). The theme for this weeks’ ‘Lunch’ is Global Manufacturing and its impact on Africa’s Economy and Lord Michael John Hastings, Baron Hastings of Scarisbrick; KPMG International’s Global Head of Corporate Citizenship will be our guest.

Will local manufacturing improve Africa’s economy? With an additional strong GDP from Nigeria, should we expect more growth from other regions? Economic indicators are predicting a positive outlook for Africa but can these be relied on, given the continents’ economic volatility, lack of stable electricity, etc? Whatever you need to know about the prospect of manufacturing in Africa, the LWOL platform is an opportunity for you to get a business and factual insight from a KPMG professional.

In case you can’t join us for that hour and you have a question, simply send it in an email to and we’ll help ensure the question is posted on your behalf.
