With the recent partnership between the South African Chamber of Commerce Singapore and WESGRO in South Africa, join us for a dynamic virtual networking event whereby prospective sellers meet prospective buyers in Singapore and South East Asia. The event will afford participants 7 minutes of face time one on one with prospective business partners and companies to introduce themselves, gather details and set up follow-up discussions following the virtual networking session.
This is a fantastic opportunity to be matched with a broader network in Asia and have a one-to-one discussion virtually about trade and investment opportunities between these two great regions.
This will be the first of many opportunity discussions and events showcasing South Africa to Singapore and visa versa. And it beats facing substantial travel costs and logistics that are involved in typical network expansion.
We are looking forward to having everyone there.
