The South African Department of Trade and Industry financial assistance to attend the East African Power Industry Convention

The dti plays a critical role in the promotion of economic development and meaningful participation in the global economic and trade environment. It achieves this by working to build an equitable multilateral trading system that facilitates development, strengthens trade and investment links with key economies. A significant feature of the dti’s international engagement also involves work to support African regional economic integration and development co-operation.

As part of their ongoing support of South African companies, and to continue growing South African exports, the DTI are offering South African companies the opportunity to apply for financial assistance to exhibit at the East African Power Industry Convention (EAPIC).
