The Chairman of the Portfolio Committee on International Trade & Tourism invites all interested Chamber Members to attend the forthcoming meeting of the Portfolio Committee.

Is your business paying too much for its imported inputs, uncompetitive relative to export competitors or feeling the heat from cheap imports? There are a myriad of regulatory relief measures that can be applied to ease these profit draining elements on a business entity. The Portfolio Committee on International Trade & Tourism has arranged for an expert briefing to introduce Chamber Members to the most important instruments available and show some concrete examples from practice of the revenue that can be added to the bottom line from using these trade regulations. If this resonates with your experience then ‘A lawyer’s tips on increasing profits using trade regulations’ is the ‘must hear’ presentation for you.

The briefing will be made by Niel Joubert. Niel is a Director with the Cape Town based Trade Law Chambers, a specialist firm focusing on international trade law issues. He is an international trade lawyer with extensive experience in the fields of trade regulation and the commercial aspects of cross border trade and investment. He has inter alia worked as in the Legal Affairs Division of the World Trade Organization based in Geneva. He serves on the executive of the Exporters Club of the Western Cape and lectures on the trade LLM programmes of the University of the Western Cape. Niel holds BCom (Law), LLB and LLM degrees from the University of Stellenbosch, and a joint Masters in International Law and Economics (M.I.LE.) from Switzerland’s prestigious World Trade Institute at the University of Bern.
