South Africa shows interest in India’s agriculture, food processing sectors

Aiming to boost bilateral trade between the two countries, South Africa, on Thursday, evinced interest in food processing and agriculture sectors in India.

In the first ever 'South Africa Week', the country showcased the technologies related to food processing and agriculture sector.

The weeklong seminar commenced in Mumbai from September 9-10, 2014 and then moved to Gurgaon on September 11-12, 2014.

South Africa's agriculture minister Senzeni Zokwana in a statement said, "A number of significant leaders from the trade, business and academic fraternity having turned up and partaken in the mutual discussions, we are looking forward to fulfil our agenda to create lucrative business and investment opportunities with India."

Zokwana also added that he will make this an annual event.

Business seminars in both cities are being held with technocrats, leaders of business organisations, resident commissioners of the 29 Indian states, FMCG managers from top supermarkets, hotel groups and also the representatives of key importers.

South Africa Week is expected to further promote bilateral trade among the two nations.

South Africa has advanced agriculture and food processing sectors due to the use of sustainable technologies, especially in supply, cold chain management and infrastructure development.

The South African delegation also included farmers who exchanged ideas to ensure that both countries benefit from the event.
