Developing a supply chain system is key for any business. Not only do businesses have to obtain supplies from factories and warehouses, but they have to ensure the safe and efficient distribution to their customers both retailers and consumers. In Africa, this is crucial.

Mr Petros Zenieris, Owner of The Business Criterion, has extensive supply chain management experience in West Afrcia (Ghana and Nigeria) and Asia (China, Malaysia and Singapore). He currently teaches in Singapore on courses covering the field of logistics. Petros will talk about the logistics and distribution challenges facing organisations in West Africa.

As stated by the authors of Making Africa Work, tourism is one of the most – perhaps the most – promising sector for many African countries, because it offers a possibility for the creation of a large number of jobs, especially for new entrants to the labour market. Having started tourism startups in East Africa, NTU-SBF invites Cherisa Kwong, entrepreneur from Singapore and owner of TribeXploer, and Mark Aikiriza, entrepreneur from Uganda, to share their expertise to increase awareness of Africa through tourism.
