If you are a South African electronic company, and has what it takes to undertake global challenges, you are the right partner for the Turkish electronics sector.
A delegation from Turkey’s rapidly-growing electronics sector will travel to South Africa this month on a trade mission aimed at cultivating partnerships with South African importers, distributors, agents, retailers and wholesalers, the Istanbul Electrical-Electronics, Machinery and Information Technology Exporter’s Association (TET) announced on Thursday.
TET, which is hosting the proceedings, said representatives of 15 leading companies in the electronics, electrical and cabling sector will meet with local businesses in Sandton, Johannesburg, on 31 October 2013.
South Africa is Turkey’s most important trading partner in Africa, and bilateral trade volume between the two emerging economies reached approximately US$1.6 billion in 2012.
Turkey’s electrical, electronics and IT sectors have realised record growth in recent years, with total global exports now exceeding US$12 billion, according to TET.
“In line with the goals of the Joint Economic Committee (JEC) between Turkey and South Africa and the agreement between Turkey’s Foreign Economic Relations Board (DEİK) and the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry, this trade mission seeks to develop closer ties with South African business,” TET President Fatih Kemal Ebiclioglu said in a statement.
Aiming to build on these good relations, the delegation comprises representatives from a number of suppliers of telecommunications and power technologies.
South African businesses can arrange private one-on-one meetings with their Turkish counterparts on 31 October 2013 in Sandton by emailing Wilna at [email protected].
Participation is free to accredited companies.
