Black Industrialists explore opportunities in Mozambique

A Williams

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) must be commended for the proactive approach in taking South Africa's black industrialists on a trade mission to explore trade and investment opportunities to Mozambique. In so doing, we ensure that Black Industrialists participate in Intra-Africa Trade opportunities, and forging networks and partnerships with relevant businesses and industry associations.

The mission got underway on Sunday, 04 March 2018 and was undertaken to address the second pillar of the Black Industrialist Policy, which speaks to access to markets both locally and continentally.

Mozambique forms part of the top-five South African partners on the continent and is one of several missions that the department has invested in, to ensure that Black Industrialists participate. It is imperative that South Africa intensifies the strength of its relations, especially in the area of economic cooperation and investment

The ANC believes that this initiative should be encouraged and emulated by other SADC countries and in so doing, contribute to the African agenda for industrialisation and regional integration for sustainable and inclusive development

I thank you
