Africa Oil Week is synonymous with deals and transactions across the African Oil and Gas sector. The African Local Content Forum, within Africa Oil Week, is a high-profile platform for National Oil Companies, International Oil Companies, Independent Oil Companies and Service Companies to promote a single vision of the future roadmap for African Local Content within the global oil and gas sector.
The Forum is a unique setting for decision makers with a pan-African view of local  content to meet governments who build local content policy for national development. It is an opportunity to engage 1-2-1 with regional policy makers regarding some of the most pressing local content issues facing Africa.
