Description
ECOMOF 2021 will discuss the local content policy - the case of ECOWAS member states, with a special focus on how the development of local content is vital to achieve socio-economic objectives and strengthen the capacities of resident companies. However, to meet the demands for local content and technical skills, it is necessary to reflect on how governments, development and the private sectors can work together to empower the local workforce in terms of both investment and training. Discussions about local content will focus on the identification of local supply links, developing a set of specialized skills for technology-driven operations; ongoing projects on cooperation with universities and international vocational schools; case studies on the transfer of skills from international companies; and mobilizing capital for local content development.
