Expanding Ties with South Africa

Mrs Shari Small, Acting Consul General of South Africa in Hong Kong, paid a courtesy visit on the Chamber’s Asia and Africa Committee Chairman Jonathan Lamport on 15 December. Small said South Africa was traditionally known to most for its primary commodities such as gold, minerals and gems, despite actually being a diverse economy with well-advanced sectors such as financial, legal, communications, energy and transport. The country also worked closely with Chinese enterprises in forestry, technology & innovation and SKA (intergovernmental radio telescope project). Both sides agreed to cooperate closely to bring to members up-to-date information about South Africa and its business opportunities.
