Most South African companies access the DRC‘s mining market by attending the DRC Mining Week. Renewing their presence on the SA National Pavilion and positioning South African companies as leading players in the mining and infrastructure sectors. The platform is an opportunity for local and international to network, exchange best practices, get first-hand vital information, to export their products and services, to find local partners, to maximise their reach and exposure. DRC Mining Week is the ideal business platform for South Africa to increase business relationships with the DRC and to increase their foothold in the country and the SADC region.

We help Dti develop the DRC export market. "South Africa is the DRC’s biggest exporter of foreign goods and services, providing more than 25 percent of the DRC’s total imports. South Africa’s investments into the DRC have been in the mining, services, the retail, finance and communications sectors," (African News Agency)



South African companies participating at DRC Mining Week are funded by the dti through its Export Marketing and Investment Assistance (EMIA) Scheme. One of the objectives of the scheme is to develop export markets for the South African products and services. More than 1 000 companies benefitted from the scheme in the last financial year.
