From November 2-4, Crown Prince Frederik will be heading a business delegation travelling to South Africa to promote Danish exports to the country and to the African continent at large.

“The visit will give Danish companies a unique opportunity to gain an insight into the potential for particularly interesting growth possibilities, creating a valuable network and developing business opportunities,” the Foreign Ministry said.

The delegation will visit Johannesburg and Cape Town and will focus on industries where Danish know-how and services can offer solutions to challenges in the country – especially energy, water and the environment, and agriculture and food.

South Africa is the 33rd biggest economy in the world and for Denmark is the gateway into the rest of the region.
