DOING BUSINESS WITH SOUTH AFRICAN COMPANIES
While the South African policy environment is unattractive in certain ways, many South African companies offer world-class value as business and investment partners. For instance, 15 South African companies feature on the Forbes Global 2000 list. Business groups from South Africa are major sources of investment in property development, agriculture, fintech and many other industries world-wide. Significantly, small and medium-sized enterprises in South Africa are eager to either source products internationally of provide intermediate or consumer goods and services abroad.
