Trade & Tourism
The development of stronger trade and investment ties between South Africa and Tunisia is a priority for the Embassy of South Africa in Tunisia. In this regard we undertake several initiatives every year to promote economic exchanges between our countries.

The Trade section of the Embassy remains available to any request from the Tunisian business community seeking more information on doing business with South Africa or investing in South Africa. If you are potentially seeking to enter into an import/export contract with a South African supplier/buyer it is recommended that you please contact the Embassy to put you in touch with reliable business partners, rather than sourcing information directly from the internet. This will ensure that you deal with professional bodies in South Africa.

Below is an overview on the opportunities and reasons to do business with South Africa. Should you require more information please visit the website of the Department of Trade and Industry at www.thedti.gov.za
