AAAM World Economic Forum (WEF) Affiliated Automotive Executive Breakfast

Building Automotive Manufacturing Ecosystems in Africa

Africa is widely considered as the final frontier for the automotive industry, with underdevelopments across the continent representing immense growth opportunities across the entire value chain from production and assembly to sales and after-sales services. Furthermore, rising per capita income levels, ongoing developments of financial markets, as well as projected increases in motorisation rates all add to the opportunity for advanced vehicle manufacturing ecosystems across the continent. This opportunity, however, can be achieved only through the alignment of stakeholders committed to the formulation, and subsequent implementation, of accommodative automotive policy frameworks.


As Deloitte Africa and on behalf of the African Association of Automotive Manufacturers (AAAM), we have the pleasure of inviting you to join us at the exclusive AAAM WEF Affiliated Automotive Executive Breakfast with Deloitte Africa Automotive Leader and Managing Director: Emerging Markets & Africa, Dr Martyn Davies, and a panel of Executives from the Automotive sector who will share their insights around leading and driving Automotive industrialisation across the continent.
