About us and our services
Your Partner for bilateral business
The Southern African – German Chamber of Commerce and Industry – with offices in
Johannesburg and Cape Town – is the authorized representative of German industry and
trade for Southern Africa.
For more than fifty years, our Chamber has been facilitating the establishment of business
links between Southern Africa and Germany by supplying information on the economic
situation in both countries, bringing together potential trade partners, and offering a
wide range of other services.
The Chamber is well prepared to help your company find its way into the markets. Our
fields of expertise cover all aspects of trade and investment – in Southern Africa as well
as in Germany.
Within a strong global network
Our Chamber is closely linked to the strong network of 83 Chambers of Commerce in
Germany, which provides easy access to about 3 million German companies. In addition
our Chamber is part of the worldwide network of German Chambers of Commerce
Abroad (AHKs) in more than 80 countries on every continent of the world. Currently we
are involved in a project with our AHK-counterparts in other countries aiming to build up a
uniform marketing strategy and a uniform range of services offered by all chambers.
