    . Investment Opportunities:

    We appreciate the presence of Germany companies in SouthernAfrica e.g., BMW, VW, Daimler, Bayer, Siemens.

    South Africa is the biggest trading partner of Germany in Africa andSouthern African rely on SA for German products. Germany industrymay invest directly in specific countries using the same successful

    supply chain networks used by South Africa into the rest ofSouthern Africa.

    Germany imports raw materials from South Africa but South Africaalso sources similar resources from the rest of southern Africa. Itwould be cheaper for the German industry to also consider dealing

    directly with the respective countries. (Coal-Zimbabwe, Zambia,Iron-Zimbabwe, horticultural products-Malawi, Zimbabwe,Copper-Zambia,DR Congo,Diamond-Namibia,Botswana,Angola,Crude Oil-Angola)
