African Local Content Forum

What was discussed in 2019?

At Africa Oil Week 2019, the African Local Content Forum drove strategic conversations with the ultimate aim of advancing socio-economic development across the continent. Questions asked included: 

  • ​Ethics and transparency: What are the distortions caused by local content requirements from both a government and supplier perspective. What can be done to mitigate these risks?
  • What can be done to ensure local content policies and programs are providing workers with the skills they need to succeed?

  • Issues in delivering on local content from the perspective of international, regional and domestic suppliers: What works and how to elicit good behavior?

  • What aspects of local content deliver the most value and how do we measure this? What data and market intelligence are needed?
