Global Trade Developments: Opportunity Knocks
The 5th edition of this annual key economic intervention focusses a spotlight on exporting and exports from the Eastern Cape, 17 & 18 August 2023 at the East London ICC.
It brings together not only current and new local exporters but also international trade partners, trade policy experts, government support agencies, financiers, logistics and infrastructure role-players, under one roof.
The Eastern Cape Export Symposium is part of the Eastern Cape Development Corporation’s commitment to grow the province’s significant contribution to global markets.
The event, to be held in-person, will connect these role-players through an exhibition, two-day, short-plenary, workshops, match-making and networking opportunities to achieve two overarching objectives:
- Promoting exports and supply networks (via access to markets, resources and current research)
- Synergising resources and focus of a wide range of export-related role-players that optimises export efficiency and economic growth.
All activities will be hosted in-person, however, the plenary sessions will also be live streamed.
The intended audience includes local, national and international role players (exporters, logistics service providers, economic development agencies, trade promotion agencies, sectoral associations, funders and buyers with a strong presence from Africa.
