Unido SPX South Africa Impact Report

The UNIDO Subcontracting and Partnership Exchange (SPX) is a technical cooperation programme that links domestic enterprises in developing countries to the supply chains of large domestic or international companies. The aim of the UNIDO SPX programme is to develop local SME capacity to meet buyer needs and to identify profitable business opportunities for them.
Our benchmarking services are being used to support the development of supply chains in emerging economies.

South Africa was the first country to get involved from 2009 onwards, so far more than 400 businesses benchmarked and benefitted from UNIDO assistance.

12 countries so far across Africa as well as Iraq and Vietnam have joined the network.  We are continuing to grow with Nigeria and China starting to use the service in the coming months.
