Africa Dti undertakes investment mission to Ghana, Benin

Pretoria - Trade and Industry Deputy Minister Elizabeth Thabethe will undertake an Outward Selling and Investment Mission to Ghana, which kicks off on Wednesday.

In a statement on Tuesday, the Department of Trade and Industry (dti) said Thabethe would leave today on a five-day trip to Ghana, followed by another to Benin.

“The mission aims to increase trade and investment between South Africa, Ghana and Benin, and will also serve as an ideal opportunity for South African companies that are interested in exporting value-added products and services and are looking for investment opportunities,” said dti spokesperson Sidwell Medupe.

Thabethe is leading a business delegation to both countries. The deputy minister’s mission to Ghana will be from 26 to 30 June, followed by Benin from 30 June - 5 July.

Thabethe is expected to meet with the Ghanaian Minister of Trade and Industry, Haruna Idrissu and the Ghana Trade and Investment Promotion officials. She will also conduct site visits to projects that are part of the implementation of the South Africa-Ghana and South Africa-Benin economic and technical cooperation.

The targeted sectors for the missions include agro-processing, built environment, infrastructure, energy, mining and the electro-technical sector.

Companies forming Thabethe’s delegation have been assisted by the dti, through its Export Marketing and Investment Assistance Scheme (EMIA). The EMIA scheme develops export markets for South African products and services, and recruits new foreign direct investment into South Africa. -
