UNITED ARAB EMIRATES DELEGATION ATTENDED THE AFRICA TRADE WEEK & SA BIG 7/SAITEX 2019

AFRICA TRADE WEEK & BIG 7/SAITEX 2019 was a enormous success, as it brought together hundreds of suppliers and thousands of multi-sector trade industry professionals under one roof.
The Diplomatic Informer Magazine interviewed His Excellency Ambassador Mahash Alhameli at the UAE Pavilion at Gallagher Convention Centre and His Excellency Ambassador Mahash Alhameli had this to say: “The UAE believe that a greater understanding of South African and the UAE’s respective economies and the opportunities therein, will facilitate an expansion of trade and investment between the countries. The UAE business delegation is keen to use this platform as an opportunity to enhance trade and export opportunities for the UAE business community. It is especially in the area of trade that our relationship has grown significantly. While total trade in 1994 rested at R507 million, these figures have grown exponentially over the last two decades with the countries reaching record trade figures of R44.6 billion in 2018.” His Excellency Ambassador Mahash Alhameli said.
