the dti-Led Business Delegation Optimistic Ahead of Trip to Angola
|The South African business delegation oozes confidence ahead of their trip to Angola where they will take part in the Outward Trade and Investment Mission in Luanda. The week-long mission, which is funded and organised by the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) through its Export Marketing and Investment Assistance (EMIA) Scheme starts from 9-13 September 2019.
The mission aims to promote South African value-added products and services, while creating partnerships between the business communities of the two countries.
According to the Director of Aberdare Cables, Mr Johannes Mpotu the magnitude of the mission will provide them with an opportunity to source a new market in Africa for exporting their manufactured electrical and power cables, and most importantly forging new business relationships with potential buyers.
The Managing Director of Basils Business Opportunities, Mr Basil Phupha, says the mission came at the right time especially now that the company is looking for the export market and opportunities to expand its brand footprint across the continent.
The Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr Fikile Majola describes the upcoming mission as an opportunity to position South Africa as a preferred trade and investment partner through structured, focused and sustained commercial engagements in the targeted sectors.
