A RECENT trade mission to South Africa and Mozambique by a WA business delegation investigated new and emerging commercial opportunities.

The mission, led by Commerce and Trade Minister Hendy Cowan, sought information on major projects in South Africa, ways to establish networks to pursue opportunities and investigated direct joint venture opportunities.

The delegation included fourteen WA firms and organisations involved in agribusiness, tourism, services and mining as well as representatives of the South West Development Commission and the Mid-West Development Commission promoting investment into WA’s regions.

The group visited Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Nelspruit for meetings with local companies and organisations to discuss direct trade and also joint venture opportunities.

In Mozambique, the group visited Mozal and the aluminium smelter where 60 per cent of the product from the Worsley expansion project will be shipped once the development has been completed.

Mr Cowan said a very good relationship existed between WA and South Africa and he was keen to see this progress even further.

“This visit reflects our confidence in the mutual trade opportunities we have,” he said.
