International trade desk


The desk is the first point of contact for trade missions and visiting business executives from overseas, seeking buying or selling opportunities with local businesses. We arrange for the delegates to come to the Chamber and meet with our members. We also set up information seminars on how to do business with various countries and assist members with information on local and international exhibitions.

International buyers frequently visit South Africa to meet with local businesses who are potential suppliers of products and services. This provides an opportunity for members of the Cape Chamber and other local business people to meet on a one-on-one basis with pre-screened foreign buyers, potential distributors, sales agents, prospective customers and business partners in foreign markets.

The Chamber is an accredited issuing body for certificates of Origin required by foreign custom departments.

Carnet de Commerce, or letter of introduction from the Chamber, is an invaluable business aid available to members traveling abroad on business. It is bilingual in English and French.
