The ITI – which is scheduled to take place from Monday to Wednesday – is expected to create market access for the South African value-added products and services in India.
It will also promote South Africa as an attractive trade and investment destination.
The Deputy Minister has encouraged the delegation of 25 businesspeople to maximise the opportunities offered by the Indian market and to follow up on the economic opportunities and partnership with Indian companies based in Hyderabad.
“India has an interest in Africa, particularly South Africa. In their interaction, it is important that members of the South African business delegation inform their Indian counterparts about our government programmes aimed at achieving the industrialisation and localisation of our the economy with special focus on Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment, ” said Deputy Minister Masina.
