Spotlight on African air cargo

Trade opportunities in Africa and its contribution to economic growth will again come under the spotlight at this year’s Air Cargo Africa conference and exhibition, co-hosted by South African Airways Cargo (SAA Cargo).
The conference and exhibition will take place at Emperor’s Palace in Kempton Park from 25-27 February 2015. Air Cargo News will be there, on Stand 54.
“We are provided with a platform where we get to play a key role in promoting our country and the continent,” said Tleli Makhetha, SAA Cargo’s general manager.
Air Cargo Africa is being hosted for the second time in South Africa due to positive feedback from the delegates who attended the 2013 event.
This international event brings together leaders of the air cargo industry and also provides delegates with an opportunity to network. The conference gives delegates an opportunity to discuss trade opportunities in Africa and how these can contribute to economic growth.
The programme ranges from Africa’s role in global air cargo, supply chain management and dealing with infrastructure challenges among other topics. 
“We heartily welcome the international air freight community to our country,” said Makhetha.
Air Cargo News will be at  Air Cargo Africa, on Stand 54, so please pop along and say hello.
