Trade Mission to Mauritius 2019
The basis of the trade mission to Mauritius was to promote trade and business relation between South African (SA) and Mauritian companies with the view of increasing the economic activities between these regions and focus on increasing trade between KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) and Mauritius.
TIKZN further intended to encourage SMMEs and emerging exporters from both regions to participate in the business to business meetings and site visits via this trade mission engagement. This trade mission was the second of its kind and followed a similar mission in April 2018 when 9 KZN companies participated in a mission. The advance team made up of Mr Bongani Dlamini and Mr Claude Moodley met with representatives of the SA High Commission in Mauritius namely, Mbali Magagula, First Sectary Political, Rita Poongavanan and Daniella Laregain. During the discussion that ensued, it was good to get a briefing on the trade relation on the ground and this was vital to ensure that the event and related activities ran smoothly. Further support and collaboration from the SA High Commission, Economic Development Board (EDB) of Mauritius and the Mauritius Chamber of Commerce and Industries (MCCI) was also secured. The Conference took place on at the Hennessey Park Hotel, Mauritius on the 18th November 2019 with 57 persons in attendance. The event was program directed by Mr Claude Moodley who also emphasis the collaborative efforts of the SA High Commission, EDB of Mauritius and MCCI in making this trade event a reality and success and the Mission was led by Mr Bongani Dlamini, Board of Director of TIKZN.
