Doing Business With South Africa

Thursday, May 17 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am • Organized By Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce
30 W. Pershing Rd, Suite 201, Kansas City, Missouri 64108


Join us for a business roundtable discussion with Ms. Phumzile Mazibuko, the Consul General of South Africa in Chicago.
 As of January 2018, Ms. Phumzile Mazibuko is the Consul General of South Africa in Chicago, where she is responsible for the overall management of the Consulate General.
Ms. Mazibuko has served in different capacities within both the national and provincial government in South Africa including as the Chief of Staff in the Ministry of International Relations & Cooperation and as a Senior Manager for Communication in the Department of Housing and Local Government in Limpopo.
Ms. Mazibuko is a career diplomat having served abroad at the South African High Commission in New Delhi, India. She has also served as a Desk Officer at the Greater China Desk, within the Department of International relations of South Africa.

South Africa continues to be an attractive market for U.S. businesses, importing nearly $5 billion of U.S. goods in 2016. Sophisticated financial, legal, and business services coupled with excellent transportation infrastructure make South Africa an appealing market. U.S. branded goods enjoy a strong reputation, and South Africa is often considered a gateway to other sub-Saharan markets.

This event is free, but we ask that you please RSVP as space is limited.
