Major concerns have surfaced among South African manufacturers regarding the sustainability of their operations, along with the ripple effect it will have on the country's economy, in response to Eskom's recent power outages.

The conference will host discussions on the prevalent outcomes of the nation’s blackouts and provide industry players the opportunity to prevail over the associated challenges.
