‘Exporters Club works with the Cape Chamber at the monthly Port Liaison Forum meetings"

Exporters' club attracts growing membership
  by Liezl Venter

Terry Gale has been re-elected as the chairman of the Exporters Club Western Cape.
Also re-elected at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in October was the executive committee of the club.
"We have grown membership exponentially in 2013 and it continues to be a target for 2014," said Gale. "At the same time the club is also in a very sound financial position and we are very happy with what was achieved during the past year. With the team ready to go we have great expectations for 2014."
The ECWC hosts monthly information sessions for its members and is involved in several business and government initiatives.
"It really is about being pro-active and engaging with the various role-players in an effort to create a positive environment for exporters," said Gale. "In this regard we have worked very hard towards establishing relationships with Transnet and the port for example."
