Aubrey Matshiqi, political analyst and research fellow at the Helen Suzman Foundation is to speak at next month’s CIPS Pan African Conference.
A specialist in South African politics, Matshiqi is a former government spokesman and member of the strategy unit in the Premier’s Office in Gauteng. In May 2014, he spoke at a symposium in honour of Nelson Mandela at Uppsala University in Sweden.
He will speak on 29 July at the Emperor’s Palace in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The conference will be followed by the CIPS Supply Management and SOEPF AAPP Awards in the evening. Ten team awards and three individual awards are up for grabs with 30 June as the deadline to enter.
“As Africa progresses towards becoming an investment destination of choice, procurement continues to play a pivotal role in the economic development of the continent,” said André Coetzee, managing director, CIPS Africa.
