In the last decade, despite a general global trade decline, Pakistan has seen its exports grow by an impressive 11.7 % on year-to-year basis. Figures that show the country is serious about increasing its footprint and bringing business to other countries.
The Government of Pakistan launched “Look Africa” Policy in 2017 to enhance economic focus on African countries, and has previously taken the annual Pakistan-Africa Trade Development Conference & Single Country Exhibition to Kenya and Nigeria, with South Africa being the third country to be chosen to host this event. This year the Government of Pakistan is targeting the entire SADC region. The Single Country Exhibition has over 140 exhibitors from a wide range of industry sectors.
Judging by the highly successful events in Nairobi and Lagos in 2020 and 2021 respectively, where significant partnerships, trade agreements and economic ties were formed, this year’s event at the Sandton Conference Centre is not to be missed. At the last event in Nigeria, over 93 MOUs were signed with local businesses, generating USD 32 million in business.
For any SME, corporate, entrepreneur or government from around the SADC region looking to find new partners, products, suppliers and technologies to expand their growth, this is a rare opportunity to view the multiple sectors of Pakistan’s many sectors of business and manufacturing. Goods on display range from kitchen and household items to IT, construction to agriculture, food and spices to surgical instruments and pharmaceuticals.

“This is an ideal opportunity for you to see hundreds of new brands, products, technologies and equipment. Most of these haven’t been seen here before, so they present a great opportunity for people to build their businesses with new partners, suppliers and technologies,” continues Israr.
