Export Promotion in South Africa - Day 1

Recommended Posts


HRH The Crown Prince participates in a business promotional campaign in South Africa 2-4 November 2015.

The Crown Prince will lead a business delegation with nearly 50 companies to South Africa, which is the largest export market for Denmark in Africa. The Crown Prince will be accompanied by environment and food minister Eva Kjer Hansen and business and growth minister Troels Lund Poulsen.

South Africa is the 33rd largest economy in the world. At the same time, the country is challenged in a number of areas in which Danish companies are strong. Those strengths revolve around the green sector, from which Danish know-how and services can offer solutions, as well as agriculture and food products.

The business campaign will focus on energy (sustainable energy and energy efficiency), water and environment (integrated water solutions, technology) and also agriculture and food products (crops, machinery, biomass, livestock and food products).

Monday, 2 November (Programme modified due to flight difficulties)

The Crown Prince was delayed in arriving to South Africa due to fog at London's Heathrow Airport and therefore could not participate as planned in the first parts of the scheduled program. The minister for Environment stood in for him: ,http://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelige/danmark/forsinket-kronprins-frederik-afloest-i-sydafrika

Heavy fog at Heathrow yesterday and today. Also in Europe. Lots of delays at airports.

The Minister for Business and Growth was also delayed.
