WESGRO Trade Delegation to ANGOLA

SMD formed part of a trade delegation led by the Western Cape Premier Helen Zille to visit Luanda, Angola at the end of April 2015. The Western Cape Government’s trade mission enabled us to network and meet the various ministers and the governor of Luanda looking to increase bi-lateral relations with South Africa and specifically the Western Cape. We also had the opportunity to meet with and discuss various challenges and difficulties we face with the South African Consulate in Angola as well as the Angolan regulatory administrators. In addition to the various government and administrator meetings, we also had the opportunity to network and meet with many local Angolan companies looking to increase business between the two economies.
