It was an amazing experience for Trade Forward Southern Africa to be part of SAITEX 2022 in collaboration with the JCCI. Great to showcase the many tools, information resources, and online digital exporter training offered for free access and use by exporters in Southern Africa which we provide via our Trade and Information hub and which we could achieve both from our stand and in workshops arranged by SAITEX. Exporters and Government Officials visited our stand and fully engaged us in our plans to help grow export businesses.
It was indeed a great opportunity for us to showcase SEFA products. We are already seeing the follow-up due to our workshop session. Clients coming and looking for funding and some following up on the previously submitted applications. We would always take the opportunity to support SAITEX on the next upcoming editions.
SAITEX was great. The best experience and I have learnt a lot from the people I have interacted with. Thank you for making it easy for us to participate.
Saitex was a fantastic opportunity to meet and network with new companies. We showcased our proudly South African products and gained exposure to new ideas.
