The Western Cape is quickly gaining recognition as a springboard for companies seeking to export to the rest of Africa. In 2017/18, Wesgro’s trade team, through its Export Advancement Programme, assisted 139 Western Cape based companies and undertook 31 outward trade missions.
Withstanding many global headwinds, the Western Cape’s economy proved to be resilient. In fact, between 2008 and 2017, Western Cape exports – excluding petroleum – have increased year-on-year. The trade of agricultural exports, which constituted more than 50 percent of South Africa’s total agricultural exports, showed no signs of declining, despite the impact of the drought over the last two years.
