Under the initiative of the Africa Petroleum Producers Association (APPA) and with the support of the Ministry of Petroleum of the Republic of Angola, AME Trade organised the launch edition of the African Oil & Gas Local Content Conference and Exhibition in Luanda.
The event, developed under the theme of Achieving an average rate of 30% of Local Content in different oil and gas activities in African Petroleum producing countries by 2030, was designed with the specific goal of stimulating industrial development through increased local capacity by finding solutions to the challenges of meeting localization requirements and building the local skills set across the hydrocarbon industry, which we believe was achieved though viable open discussions.
It needs to be noted that this event allowed the channels of conversation to begin, but it is still a long road forward to creating sustainable localisation across the petroleum producing countries in Africa and we hope to continue the discussions annually to assess and develop local content with all stakeholders.
Thank you for being a part of this initiative and a special thank you to our sponsors, Chevron, Total, ExxonMobil, Sonangol, and our partners, APPA and the Republic of Angola for their belief in local content development for the economic sustainably of Africa.
We look forward to seeing you all at the 2nd edition of ALC to continue the deliberations
