Sa Dti in DRC to promote trade

Pretoria - Trade and Industry Deputy Minister Elizabeth Thabethe has arrived in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where she is leading a business delegation on an Investment and Trade Initiative (ITI).

“The ITI is part of the dti’s Export and Investment Promotion Strategy that focuses on targeted high growth markets with the objective of creating investment and export opportunities for South African companies and of promoting South Africa as a trade and investment destination,” said the dti on Monday.

The ITI is one of the efforts by the dti meant to promote intra-Africa trade, which is essential for unlocking continental growth and facilitate economic integration.

Thabethe is accompanied by 43 South African businesspeople to the ITI, which will be held in Kinshasa and Lubumbashi.

The programme of the ITI includes a trade investment seminar, exhibitions and business-to-business meetings.

“The exhibitions will expose our companies to export opportunities and will provide a platform to promote South African products to potential new customers and penetrate new markets” said Thabethe.

The ITI will conclude on Saturday. –
