Future Manufacturing Africa Launch

Date: 2 June 2022

By: RX Africa

The launch of Future Manufacturing Africa (FMA) Trade Fair and Summit 2023 highlighted the need to establish a platform that makes development and investment prospects within the sector more accessible. Post the widespread of COIVD 19, this Trade Fair and Summit is a pronounced platform to spearhead the discourse around the improvement of technology, industrial production and job creation across Africa. This distinctively underpins the impact and implementation of African Continental Free Trade Area (AFCFTA) which creates an untapped market of 1.3 billion consumers and $4.3 billion GDP. The mammoth socio-economic development initiative will breakdown the barriers of the borders, alleviate joblessness and unite African countries as one trading unit to create a single market for goods and services and deepen the economic integration of Africa.

 At the launch of FMA which took place on the 2nd June the FMA 2023 launched the golden thread across key segments within the manufacturing sector in Africa. FMA creates a development path for the African manufacturing sector where business opportunities for companies across the African continent, that can assist in the growth of circular manufacturing for sustainable development.


The launch offers a breadth of dissertation that provided a prelude to what can be expected at the main event. From Manufacturing Management Systems and Solutions to Sustainable Technology to increase circular development in manufacturing, amongst many innovative exhibitor categories attendees will experience the depth of manufacturing across various market segments. 


Carol Weaving, Managing Director at RX Africa, noted that significant organisations tasked to promote the agenda of economic growth not just from a South African but also from an African viewpoint had lent their support to the event. FMA 2023 is currently endorsed by Black Business Council (BBC) an independent membership-based organisation representing professional, business associations and chambers; and KESA Chamber of Business, Kenya South-Africa Chamber of Business (KESACB), an organisation that seeks to promote the interests of the business community between Kenya and South-Africa with an endorsement of social cohesion.


After the official agreement signing with BBC president Elias Monage and Carol Weaving, Mr Monage encouraged attendees to register for the event. Be sure to diarise the FMA2023 trade fair and summit as 9-11 May 2023 at the Johannesburg Expo Centre (Nasrec), South Africa.
