As the procurement and supply chain profession keeps evolving, it is important for procurement leaders and their teams to stay up to speed with the latest strategies and technological applications.
The Middle-East and North Africa region offers many opportunities for procurement professionals to demonstrate leadership and re-invent themselves through driving better value, collaboration and innovation. At the same time, delivering an efficient procurement function is not without challenges in a region of heightened geo-political and economic instability.
Governments in Egypt, the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have published development strategies to shift towards becoming knowledge-based economies capable of sustaining their own development. They are diversifying to move away from oil-dependency and investing in infrastructure, technology, tourism, education and training.
Procurement and supply professionals need to be aware of this transformation; cognizant of the tests they face; and know how they can help to ensure the region’s success.
The CIPS Middle East Conference & Supply Management Awards 2017 will explore these developments and offer help, inspiration and motivation to enable countries to better perform their part.
The event takes place on May 9, 2017 at The Rosewood in Abu Dhabi, and will see procurement professionals from finance, education, commerce, security, construction, leisure and technology converge and discuss topical issues in the supply chain industry.
