Event Summary:
The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service (CS) is organizing a trade mission to South Africa, September 19-23, 2011. Led by a senior Department of Commerce official, the mission is intended to include representatives from a variety of U.S. industry suppliers and service providers with targeted industries being energy equipment and technologies, agricultural equipment, and educational services and skills development.

South Africa is a country of 50 million people, rich in culture, people and natural heritage. With remarkable macroeconomic stability and a pro-business environment, South Africa is a logical and attractive choice for U.S. companies to enter Sub-Saharan Africa. Growth of South Africa's consumer base also provides ample opportunity for U.S. exporters. With stops in Johannesburg and Cape Town, this trade mission will introduce U.S. companies to potential buyers and allow them to explore new business opportunities in the dynamic South African market. The mission will include one-on-one business appointments, briefings and evening receptions.

The cost for a SME (fewer than 500 employees) is $2,125.00. The cost for a large company is $2,565.00. Each additional representative is $450.00.
