Trade and Industry

The Department of Trade and Industry’s vision is of a South Africa that has a vibrant economy, characterised by growth, employment and equity, built on the full potential of all citizens.

To achieve this, the department has become an outwardly focused, customer-centric organisation.

The department assists exporters by providing information, financial support and practical assistance to sustain growth in traditional markets and penetrate new high-growth markets, such as China, India and Russia.
Progress has been made in trade integration in the Southern African Development Community (SADC). Over the medium term, the SADC will focus on addressing rules of origin, trade facilitation and non-tariff barriers.
