CAPE TOWN – The South African government and business delegation that returned from Tunisia today expressed confidence that the trade leads that they generated there will result in concrete deals.
The delegation was in an Outward Trade and Investment Mission organised by the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti). Their programme included business seminars, business-to-business meetings and site visits.
The mission was led by the Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr Bulelani Magwanishe who described the mission as a success.
"I am positive that the engagements that we had in Tunisia as business and government will bear fruits in the near future. We had serious interactions with the Tunisian public and private sectors and they all expressed their commitment to facilitate more trade and investment between Sout Africa and Tunisia," said Magwanishe.
He added that the series of meetings he held with the Tunisian business and government leaders have paved the way and laid a solid foundation for the SA businesspeople to collaborate and do business with the Tunisians.
