Empowering the Province of KwaZulu-Natal through successful export development

Mr Zamo Gwala, CEO of Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal addressing the audience at the Export Summit 2013

The 2nd KwaZulu-Natal Export Week hosted by Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal (TIKZN) and Bidvest Panalpina Logistics started on 28 October and ends on 31 October 2013.
The week commenced with a Jetro Export Product Specific Training Programme and continues with the Export Week Summit (29-30 October 2013) at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Conference Centre in Durban.  The rest of the week will be filled with information and networking sessions and capped off with the Durban Chamber’s Export Awards Gala Dinner. Bidvest will provide training to the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) delegates on the 31st October 2013 as well as provide a tour of the Port of Durban on their vessel. Another focus this week is on Women in Export. These dynamic women have also been profiled in a special export week edition of the TIKZN publication Emnothweni.
Mr Zamo Gwala, CEO of TIKZN said, “This year boasts stronger involvement of the private sector, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and Export Finance Agencies. The Export Summit will include discussion panels that debate challenges and opportunities in exports including cross border trade, finances and perspectives of private and public sector development funders”.

TIKZN held the inaugural “Export Week” in 2012. It was then agreed by the MEC for Economic Development and Tourism, Mr Michael Mabuyakhulu, that this event will be held annually. The event will seek to recognise, promote and assist with growing KwaZulu-Natal’s export businesses and industries.

“Export Week and, in particular, the Summit, is developed in order to boost the profile of KZN’s exporters. This is an essential way of contributing to the business community’s awareness of the crucial role those exporters play in KwaZulu-Natal’s and South Africa’s economy”, concluded Gwala.

KZN Export Week seeks to:
•    Provide an opportunity to grow and sustain business operations
•    Enables the Province of KZN to attract investments and new business thereby creating employment opportunities
•    Increase export led growth which is important for the Province and South African economy
•    Increase export growth which can trigger greater productivity, thus, creating jobs and more exports in an upward spiral cycle
