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 speed. What does the future of business and trade look like? How can your business anticipate the next trend?
The purpose of SAITEX is to answer these questions. We facilitate tangible international and local trade relationships, whilst providing a 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 private sector, unlocking opportunities in Africa for the past 27 years. This has made SAITEX the central meeting place for African and international buyers and sellers. It is where relationships are built, trade connections established and business gets done.

Delivering new trade opportunities

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.
