GABORONE, Nov. 26 (Xinhua) -- Botswana's leading cement producer PPC Botswana has announced a commitment to propelling the local economy into the global table of high-income countries.
Tuelo Botlhole, PPC Botswana's head of Unit said on Wednesday, "There is evidence that cultivating local enterprises, applying requisite strategy models and relevant market access tenets brings about sustenance, long-term stability and value. I believe the future of our economy is in the hands of our people."
As part of the efforts, PPC Botswana has sponsored a Buy Botswana Conference slated for next week to showcase the country's economic fulcrum.
Botlhole said the event aims to maintain unique community character, provide continuing opportunities for entrepreneurs, build community's economic strength, and prevent the displacement of community-based businesses by national and global chains.
He said industry experts will touch on various topics such as experiences and challenges faced by local manufacturers, doing business in the post-COVID-19 era, value chain optimization and business process service management. Enditem
