TIL Tackles Regional Cooperation

Trade and Investment Limpopo (TIL) hosted a three day Kingdom of Swaziland Inward Mission. The mission followed after a TIL led business delegation to the Swaziland International Trade Fair (SITF) during August and September 2009 – and included a fact finding mission to Limpopo in preparation of a Swazi Business Mission planned for early 2010. The mission was led by a cross section of Kingdom of Swaziland socio-economic and political institutions; including parliamentarian representatives, Swaziland Investment Promotion Agency (SIPA) as well as the Federation of Swaziland Employers & Chamber of Commerce (FCECC).

The mission also gave practical impetus to a TIL- SIPA strategic agreement, signed in 2008. The MOU commits the two agencies to establish enhanced channels of communications for ongoing flow of business information, the provision of market intelligence, and exploration of joint programmes such as business seminars, exchange programmes, and trade fairs – to promote greater levels of awareness of business opportunities in the respective territories.

Economic sectors ear-marked for cooperation inlcude projects in agro-processing technology transfer, import-export of sugar, arts and crafts (ceramic products and beadwork), coal mining, energy, capital infrastructure, as well as tourism business opportunities emanating from South Africa’s hosting of the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup. The delegation visited tomato processing projects in Tzaneen, Macadamia nuts green farms and Tshivhase Tea Estate in Vhembe, as well as the Peter Mokaba sports complex 2010 FIFA World Cup stadium in Polokwane.
Says TIL General Manager for International Operations, Manabile Shogole, “This inward mission is a realization of ongoing diplomatic and economic ties between South Africa and the Kingdom of Swaziland. The engagement between Limpopo and Swaziland also reflects on wider southern African regional strategies; such as the pursuance of the opening of SADC economies to enable free movement of goods and people. It is our view that the Southern African Customs Union will resolve some of the economic challenges and limitations resulting from unilateral trade practices. Grouping South Africa, Swaziland, Mozambique and Zimbabwe increases market share and investor appetite – as this results in a SADC market estimated to be some 188 million people.”
