27 YEARS OF DEFINING TRADE OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN AFRICA

When entering any emerging market, particularly in the multi-product supplier space, you need to understand your operating environment at a lightning pace. What does the future of business and trade look like? How can your business anticipate the next trend?

This is the purpose of SAITEX. We pride ourselves in being a facilitator of tangible international and local trade relationships, as well as providing the platform for the private sector to demonstrate the innovations, solutions and services they have to offer Africa.

Our experience in this market has empowered high-level international trade discussions between governments and the private sector, unlocking of opportunities in Africa for past 27 years. This has resulted in SAITEX being the central meeting place for African and international buyers and sellers to build relationships, create trade linkages and ultimately doing better business!

Delivering new trade opportunities

With 54 signatories of AfCFTA, the new trading block is forecasted to significantly boost African trade relations. According to a report from the World Bank, intra-continental exports are estimated to increase by 81% while the increase from non-African countries would be around 19%.

The trade regulations are set out to increase transparency, improve access to markets, accelerate the transition to a digital economy and develop better business services such as management tools, software, finance, marketing and e-commerce.
