Dear Friends

As at April 2019, the United States is currently South Africa’s 3rd largest trading partner, both imports and exports.

Now is the time to tap into the world’s wealthiest economy…….

We are therefore privileged to host Juan Cammarano, Economic Officer, US Embassy, Pretoria and Sim Dube, Trade Specialist at the Southern African Trade & investment Hub, as guest speakers/presenters at our June function.

Many manufacturers/potential exporters raise the question : ‘How does one access AGOA?’ Here is your answer!

AGOA was set up by US Congress in May 2000 and has now been extended until 2025 – so it’s not too late to benefit from this trade agreement. On Wednesday 19th June, we will not only be celebrating trade between our two countries, but also the 50th anniversary of the 1st moon landing and the 243rd anniversary of the American Declaration of Independence.

And from a Cape Town perspective, the 1st direct US/W Cape flight on 15th December takes off, when United Airlines flies direct Liberty International, Newark – Cape Town.

Time to celebrate, with your favourite Club!

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."
