Report: Strategic Sourcing Africa-Mediterranean

 

Africa-Med strategic sourcing review – comparing East Africa, North Africa and Turkey

Published by Aroq 

October 2016

The report looks at whether East Africa can offer a full FOB package or whether the region might simply grow as a low cost manufacturer.

It considers whether North Africa and the Euro Med region could develop further due to the growth in backward integration in places like Morocco.

And, when looking at North Africa and East Africa together, could this whole region offer some brands and retailers with a new option for a complete sourcing solution closer to their bases and in similar time zones (for Europe) and slightly closer for the US?
