Programme 5: Marine Manufacturing, Associated Services and Other Manufacturing Industries Supplier Development Programme
This programme assists suppliers in ship and boat-building, maintenance and repair, and the associated services industry to enhance their visibility within local and global supply chains and increase their competitiveness. The programme is divided into two interventions, namely support for marine standards and accreditation, and support for technology enhancement. The marine standards and accreditation intervention was created to address the need for local companies to supply approved and certified products and services to designated public procurement in the ship- and boat-building industry. The technology enhancement intervention aims to assist suppliers to enter new markets or enhance existing market positions in the marine and related industries.
