Buyers and Suppliers Mixer


Event Details

Precise Consult International PLC (PRECISE) in joint venture with the New York based consultancy firm Economic Transformation Group (ETG) is contracted by the Industrial Park Corporation (IPDC) to provide consultancy services for the development of Linkage Development Plans (LDPs) to link potential local supplier companies with companies operating in Bole Lemi Industrial Park.

The PRECISE/ETG team in collaboration with the IPDC’s Competitiveness and Job Creation Project (CJCP), planned to organize a 2nd round half day event which envisages bringing potential buyer and supplier firms together so that the firms operating in BLIP can explore the possibility of sourcing some of their inputs locally. A total of 11 companies (2 from leather and 9 from textile/garment sectors) operating in Bole Lemi and a number of local firms who have the potentials to supply basic raw materials, accessories, and services which can be used by garment, footwear and leather goods manufacturing firms are expected  to participate in the event.

The event will provide a platform where buyer firms from Bole Lemi Industrial Park can get information on the various available local sourcing options for different products and services and opportunities will be created for local input supplier and service provider firms to explore business opportunities with the firms in the park and to learn about their specific quality and standard requirements, volume demanded, delivery conditions, etc.

Local companies which will be identified as having the potential for a business linkage with the companies operating in Bole Lemi Industrial Park will also be entitled to get targeted strategic supports from CJCP including a matching grant through a B2B Linkage Fund. So far, seven local company LDPs have been approved and they are on process receiving the matching grant.

The event will be organized on October 26, 2017, 8:30am -1:00pm at Bole Lemi Industrial Park.

This is therefore to cordially invite you to participate in this important event. Please bring your sample products for demonstration.
