Held under the Chatham House Rule, the 2013 NOCs & Government Summit will feature the much anticipated Great Local Content Debate.

    Led by Simbi Wabote, Contracting and Procurement Global Local Content Manager, Shell, the Great Debate will provide the international audience with the opportunity to partake in a lively interactive discussion and will allow feedback on discussions instantly via anonymous voting, to uncover the real consensus on the issues being discussed.

    Questions to be debated include; what are the main drivers of creating in-country value? Does Local Content add or detract value? Has there been a shift in world-wide thinking? What is the reality of Local Content development globally?

    Taking place on 28-30 October 2013 at The Mandarin Oriental Hotel, London, the Summit provides a platform for an interactive format, offering the ideal environment for facilitating constructive, frank discussions between key stakeholders to develop crucial strategies required to drive the industry forward.
