South Africa

South Africa is a country of 58 million people that is rich in diverse cultures, people and natural heritage. Enjoying remarkable macroeconomic stability and a pro-business environment, South Africa is a logical and attractive choice for U.S. companies to enter the African continent. It is the most advanced, broad-based and productive economy in Africa, and had a gross domestic product (GDP) of $386 billion in 2019, or about one third of the total GDP for sub-Saharan Africa region.

The U.S. Commercial Service’s three offices in South Africa - in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban – can you help you discover export opportunities and identify local distributors and representatives in South Africa as well as throughout sub-Saharan Africa.
