ACCESS! South Africa was implemented in 2005 with training covering the exporting of services. Several businesswomen received export training and assistance with particular focus on the market entry. Today, number of them have been very successful and are currently selling their products in the international market place.
The Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry is in charge of promoting and protecting the interests of business in the region. The Chamber is in a unique position to act as a link between established business, the emerging sector, and government. It is recognized locally and internationally as an impartial third party with a long history of promoting business. Assistance, guidance, development and support of international trade is the flagship service of the Chamber with great emphasis being placed on the emerging business sector in South Africa.
