Cross-Border Trading Opportunities that SMEs are missing out on…    
The unique and diverse cultures within the African continent has always fascinated the world and with the “New Africa” emerging, once again an opportunity to showcase Africa’s colourful, diverse and unique offering presents itself.
Africa’s participation in the global economy is becoming a reality for most entrepreneurs on a daily basis. Africa’s global reach is gaining momentum and entrepreneurship beyond the borders could be an accelerator for entry into the global markets.
