About Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal 

Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal is a South African trade and inward investment promotion agency, established to promote the province of KwaZulu-Natal as an investment destination and to facilitate trade by assisting local companies’ access international markets.

The organisation came into being following the national government’s decision to divest investment promotion to the provinces, rather than retaining it as a national function as had previously been the case.

Internationally, the Department of Trade & Investment promotes the country as an investment destination, whereas Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal presents a seamless trade and inward investment promotion for, specifically, KwaZulu-Natal.

The Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal institution boasts highly skilled staff members from, especially, marketing, investment promotion, strategy and research, as well as project management backgrounds.
