Invitation to participate in GIZ’s sponsored Manager Training

The Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (the dtic) is committed to continuously promote the export growth of South African companies through various interventions, ranging from Export Development to Promotional activities. In this instance, the Department has partnered with GIZ of Germany to better prepare South African companies for the German market through Manager Training Programme. This is an eight weeks training programme that seek to attract capable companies with potential to export their products and services to the German market and Europe at large. The impact of Covid-19 has restricted the training to be offered online, with three hours a day of attendance, which will also include virtual site visits to potential partners in Germany.

The programme has previously benefitted 59 South African companies from 2019, with some of them managed to secure business deals through arranged business to business meeting sessions. The success of the programme has prompted the German counterpart to continue the existing partnership and proposed to further capacitate 20 South African companies and introduce them to the German market through the programme.
