The European Business Council for Africa

South Africa remains the most important business and investment destination for German companies in Sub-Sahara Africa. Also trade between the two countries has reached record levels in the past years. To continue the good partnership, the German-South African Binational Commission is discussing current events that have influence on the German-South African topics such as the Covid-19 Pandemic, Energy partnerships, trade barriers, new policies on both sides and many more. 

This virtual meeting will therefore give an overview over the topics, that have been discussed during the Binational Commission. In addition, H.E. Phumelele Stone Sizani, South African Ambassador to Germany, will give an outlook on business opportunities for German companies, such as the fifth bidding window for renewable energy projects which is supposed to start any day as well as investments in the infrastructure sector via the Infrastructure Investment Fund

We are honoured to welcome Annelize van der Merwe, Director: Investment Promotion (Green Economy) from the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (DTIC) and a representative from Trade and Investment KwaZulu-Natal to further outline current business prospects in various sectors. 

We also invite participants to actively engage in the discussion and share their experiences. 


Please find the preliminary agenda attached to this mailing. 

This virtual seminar will be held in English via Zoom.

We are looking forward to a fruitful exchange.
