Future events will engage the other regions in the UK such as the Midlands and Wales. Online investor roundtables will also be hosted in Brazil, India, China and Turkey where verified investors who are considering investment in Southern Africa will be presented with the KwaZulu-Natal value proposition.


These online seminars follow on the success of TIKZN’s first Online Investment Conference on 06 July 2020 hosted in partnership with the Fujian Provincial Department of Commerce, the South African Consulate in Shanghai and the Fujian Foreign Affairs Office.

To help companies capture market opportunities and explore new business opportunities in KZN, six (6) high-impact investment-ready projects were presented to Chinese investors exploring opportunities in South Africa.

This conference attracted altogether 2 750 viewers from primarily China and other countries, demonstrating the strong interest in doing business amid this difficult time of fighting the Covid-19 pandemic and severe restraints on travel.
