Nov '10
After the huge success of Buyer-Seller-Meets at South Africa in the last three consecutive years of 2008, 2009 & 2010, AEPC is once again organizing a Trade Show at Cape Town & Johannesburg in South Africa from 02 – 08 March 2011 with 70 booths at each venue.

Ministry of Textiles & Ministry of Commerce has approved funding under Market Access Initiative for the India Clothing & Textile Trade Show in South Africa.

Economy in South Africa:
South Africa is the economic powerhouse of Africa with a gross domestic product (GDP) four times that of its southern African neighbors and comprising around 25% of the GDP of Africa. The country leads the continent in industrial output (40% of total output) and mineral production (45%) and generates most of Africa's electricity (over 50%). Its major strengths include its physical and economic infrastructure, natural mineral and metal resources, a growing manufacturing sector, and strong growth potential in the tourism, higher value-added manufacturing and service industries.

The Textile / Clothing Industry:
South Africa has a robust clothing industry. Clothing sales in SA are dominated by a number of retail houses, each with three or four store brands and each brand represented by a chain of over 100 stores within SA alone. The top seven chains account for roughly 70% of domestic market share. Some of the brands are also expanding into the rest of Africa.
