Under the theme Think Global: KZN the African Trade Hub, the expo will highlight the significance of exporting to the KZN economy and celebrate the success of KZN exporters.

KwaZulu-Natal’s existing and new exporters and internationally-focused businesses are urged to seize the opportunity to grow their businesses and develop new markets as KZN Export Week gets underway at the Durban ICC from October 1 to 5 October.
The seventh annual flagship event of Trade and Investment KwaZulu-Natal (TIKZN) was developed to recognise, promote and assist with growing export opportunities in KZN, thus giving export-ready businesses a platform to enhance their international business development strategies.
Under the theme Think Global: KZN the African Trade Hub, the expo will highlight the significance of exporting to the KZN economy and celebrate the success of KZN exporters.
Delivering the keynote address on day two of the proceedings is the Honourable MEC for Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs, Mr Sihle Zikalala.
Mr Jacob Twala, economic specialist in the infrastructure management and economic services at the KZN Treasury, is among the speakers and panellists on the day.
Several attendees of last year’s KZN Export Week were full of praise for the event and the impact it had created on their businesses.
Tavonga Gonyora, sales and marketing manager at Dick Whittington Shoes, said, “I work for a clothing manufacturing company and heard about KZN Export Week whilst attending an event. I was most impressed after attending KZN Export Week for the first time last year – it is an excellent platform to interact with different stakeholders from all over the country”
Gonyora said the event is beneficial in that it provides much needed insight on what is happening beyond our borders and the many exporting opportunities that exist.

“I delivered a presentation on the benefits of different trade agreements that exist. We were able to establish some good relationships during the event. I plan on attending again this year,” added Gonyora.
Indrani Govender, managing director at Ricinz Construction, said, “I was invited as a guest speaker at KZN Export Week, last year. This is where I was exposed to the myriad programmes that TIKZN offers which included opportunities for trade missions to India and Angola.”
She explained that overseas visits provided me with a platform to explore business opportunities in these countries.
When TIKZN hosted the India business delegation, she was invited and introduced to founder and global chairman of Market Next International Forum, Shine Gopal, who appointed her as the South African president of the company.
Lester Bouah, executive manager of export development and promotion at Trade and Investment KwaZulu-Natal said that KZN Export Week is a must attend for any export-ready organisation, whether seasoned or new to exporting.
“Delegates can expect new opportunities to network with and learn from industry heavyweights and pioneers to transform new ideas into action,” said Bouah.
The week concludes with a networking golf day and the ever popular Exporter of the Year awards ceremony hosted by the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
