Italian South African Chamber of Trade & Industries

The Italian-South African Chamber of Trade and Industry is a non-profit organization that supports the Italian-South African business community and assists with commercial ventures between the two countries.

The Chamber acts as a bridge between Italian and South African business. We provide vital knowledge, contacts and tailor-made assistance for Italian and South African companies to be able to navigate the prospects of bilateral trade between the two countries.

Founded in 1983 by a group of 15 prominent South African-Italian businessmen, the Italian Chamber has retained an extremely strong board of directors, consisting of some of the top Italian-South African business figures. The Chamber is thus given its mandate and guidance by a highly knowledgeable group of people who are extremely attuned to the relationship between Italy and South Africa. Every year, members of the Chamber elect an Executive Committee which works to adopt and revise strategies relevant to the annual context of the market.

We believe that there remain many opportunities in both the South African and Italian markets; and the different global economic positions of the two countries provide many opportunities for partnership between the two nations. Our team is able to tailor-make the most suitable solution for our clients. In addition to the wide range of services we offer to members and non-members, we support clients by means of personalized trade and investment solutions.
