SA seeks mar­kets in the Mid­dle East

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - OPINION -

THE Depart­ment of Trade and In­dus­try led a del­e­ga­tion of busi­ness peo­ple on an Out­ward Trade and In­vest­ment Mis­sion (OTIM) to Kuwait and Qatar yes­ter­day.

Min­is­ter of Trade and In­dus­try Rob Davies said the ob­jec­tive of the OTIM was to cre­ate a plat­form for South African value-added prod­ucts and ser­vices to es­tab­lish them­selves in the Mid­dle East­ern mar­ket.

“The mis­sion will pro­vide lo­cal com­pa­nies with an op­por­tu­nity to make in­roads into the Gulf States that have a propen­sity to con­sume large quan­ti­ties of high qual­ity niche prod­ucts as well as en­able South Africa to di­ver­sify its ex­port bas­ket,” said Davies.
