Tikzn Strengthens Ties with Gauteng Businesses

Friday, November 11, 2011 by Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal

Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal (TIKZN) will be hosting two business information networking sessions in Gauteng on 11 November 2011. The first will be a breakfast networking session hosted for exporters based in Gauteng followed by another afternoon networking session with the African Trade offices, Embassies and High Commissions based in Gauteng.

In keeping with its mandate, Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal will not only aim to promote foreign direct investment into the province but also assist local companies to access international markets.

One of the organisation's strategic objectives is to target Gauteng based exporting companies that are dispatching from Gauteng and utilising the ports of Durban and Richards Bay. The TIKZN Gauteng satellite office offers its services to be utilised as a networking tool for these companies.

Representatives of TIKZN will introduce the services offered by the agency. Also presenting on the day are Small Enterprise Development Agency (SEDA); the Department of Trade and Industry (dti); and the Durban Exporters Club.

Topics will range from the assistance to emerging manufacturers, export incentives, EMIA applications and export promotional activities, specifically into Africa.
