Event Details

Join David Edmondson, vice consul for trade in South Africa, to explore opportunities, industry prospects, and being successful in one of the world’s fastest-growing economies.

The UK is one of South Africa's most significant trading partners, with over £7 billion in two-way trade in goods and services. With a climate that is geared for growth and open for trade, it’s the ideal destination for the exporter who has an eye on building a global empire.

South Africa has abundant natural resources, a business culture that is not too dissimilar from that of the UK, and good infrastructure with major capital injections. The country’s stock market is already in the world top 20, and has attracted major international investment, making it one of the most appealing emerging economies for trade.

In 2010 South Africa was ranked as the eighteenth most attractive destination for foreign direct investment by global strategic management consulting firm AT Kearney, and ranked in the top four countries in terms of the transparency surrounding its budgets, according to the Open Budget Index.

This event, run by international trade advisor Sandra Warne, is of special interest to businesses in advanced engineering, design, construction, rail, mining, chemicals, agri-technology, environment, power, education and skills, healthcare, sports and leisure infrastructure, creative industries and financial services.
