KAPSARC Research Fellow Roger Tissot is speaking at the first Africa Oil and Gas Local Content Conference and Exhibition (ALC), which is being held in Luanda, Angola, from November 15-17, 2016.
ALC brings together delegates from African Petroleum Producers Association (APPA) member countries, industry players and decision makers, to find solutions to the challenges of meeting localization requirements and building the local skillset across the hydrocarbon industry.
The event is supported by H.E. Eng. José Maria Botelho de Vasconcelos, Minister of Petroleum, Republic of Angola, and H.E. Mahaman Laouan Gaya, Executive Chairman of the APPA.
Roger Tissot is a key member of the KAPSARC Natural Resource-led Development in New Producing Countries project. He is also co-author of research paper A Local Content Decision Tree for Emerging Producers, which draws a map to simplify the complex considerations that come into play when designing local content policy in an emerging producer context, and is published by Chatham House.
