Business advisoring

After a period of inadequate attention payed towards meridional Africa, Italy is now demonstrating a renewed awareness concerning the importance of deepening relations with the region’s countries, particularly focusing on the Republic of South Africa. Having an advanced economy, it is undoubtedly the most prominent actor within the SADC region, appealing to international partners and offering substantial benefits that are seldom found not only within the regional setting, but most definitely on the whole African continent.

The Italian and South African markets are absolutely complementary.  The Italian culture, industrial production, design, cuisine, and lifestyle are highly esteemed and considered of great value in South Africa.

Regarding the Italian entrepreneurial presence within the South African market, there are considerable opportunities (though not yet adequately exploited by our businesses) to create productive partnerships, given the country's prospects for development both as a self-sustaining market and as a hub for the wider area, may it be the Southern African Development Community or the whole growing African continent itself.

SABI will stand by your side during the development, launch and growth of your business, project planning, taking care of institutional relationships and attending to the legal, fiscal and bureaucratic aspects.
