The Origin

Some members of Manufacturers Association of African countries attending the Intra-Africa Trade Fair in Egypt in 2018 agreed to establish an umbrella body for the pursuit of Africa’s industrialization. They desired to intensify Africa’s industrial agenda and build an African manufacturing sector of the 21st century that will take its rightful place in the global value chain. This gave birth to the Pan-African Manufacturers Association (PAMA)

PAMA is committed to advocating for the interest of manufacturers in the Continent; provide its members with a platform for engagement with relevant actors and creating cooperation among African manufacturers.
