Doing Business in South Africa

South Africa is open for business

Join us this September for our networking brunch 'Doing Business in South Africa'. During a short presentation Tania Verdonk, the regional lead for the South African Chamber of Commerce in the East of England, will talk about her role and opportunities for doing trade between South Africa and the UK, especially in view of Brexit. The presentation will start with Theresa May dancing in Cape Town, a new President, connecting South Africa and the United Kingdom and maybe even some rugby world cup banter.
