The African Institute for Supply Chain Research (AISCR) is a leading Pan-African research institute that seeks to contribute to sustainable economic development and inclusive growth to improve life in Africa through supply chain innovative solutions. At the heart of AISCR is the desire to build SCM and leadership capability to drive supply chain innovation in pursuit of achieving the strategic priorities of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (ACFTA), Africa Agenda 2063, and the Sustainable Development Goals. AISCR is particularly positioned to play an important role in ensuring that business and supply chain executives are able to develop a broader view, and constructively employ smart and well-researched SCM instruments, locally and internationally, to enhance quality and margin management. Accordingly, AISCR enables the building of competitive institutions so that governments and businesses can responsibly generate the growth Africa desperately needs.

Africa has started to take concrete steps to write its own economic success story by opening up new areas of opportunity under AfCFTA which was implemented on 1 January 2021. AISCR is the ideal partner for government and business leaders to realize the huge potential opportunities on the continent.
