About This Guide
This guide aims to provide a route map of the way ahead, together with signposts to other sources of help.
The main objective of this Doing Business in South Africa Guide is to provide you with basic knowledge about South Africa; an overview of its economy, business culture, potential opportunities and to identify the main issues associated with initial research, market entry, risk management and cultural and language issues.
We do not pretend to provide all the answers, but novice exporters in particular will find it a useful starting point. Further assistance is available from the UK Trade & Investment team in South Africa. Full contact details are available in this guide.
