BME SYMPOSIUM GERMANY
6-10 November 2017, Berlin, Germany
South African producers did presenting their products and services to German / European buyers at the 52nd BME Symposium Procurement and Logistics. Therefore, 11 South African companies did attend the symposium as part of a DTI outward selling mission and participate in the event with a joint exhibition booth, supported by TEDA. The mission program also did include meetings with German producers, economic development partners, as well as a sourcing workshop by the symposium.
The delegation was proposed and supported by the Southern African-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SAGCC). The SAGCC aims at facilitating bilateral business relations between German and Southern African companies. The SAGCC seeks to facilitate the cooperation between the symposium host, BME, and the South African participants, as well as assisting with the overall organization and the program and workshop. The SAGCC has partnered with the Strategic Partnership Digital Africa, a network made up of BMZ, companies and associations, which is supporting the project.
