The Catalonia Trade & Investment office in Johannesburg is directed by Saul Pretel. He has sound experience in southern Africa where he has worked for the public and the private sector, mainly in the field of infrastructure development.
ACCIÓ’s Johannesburg office opened in 1995 to provide Catalan companies access to markets in southern Africa and, especially, to the powerful market of the Republic of South Africa. Of the more than two hundred projects that have been carried out in recent years, many companies operate in the field of food. There are also companies in the experience industry, chemicals and power, and industrial systems.
Services generating most interest among Catalan companies include the search for marketing channels, scheduling business meetings and business missions.
